Teach West London offer both salaried and non-salaried School Direct routes into teaching, depending on your circumstances.

Non-salaried

This is aimed at graduates and there are bursaries available depending on subject and degree classification. Training is provided by your main school and, for the majority of ETSA placements, St Mary's.

This route leads to QTS and a PGCE (with credits at Masters level).

Salaried

This is aimed at career-changers with at least three years of relevant work experience and will see you employed as an Unqualified Teacher by your main school. ETSA schools all benefit from London weighting. You will also still have the opportunity to spend 4-6 weeks in a contrasting school. Training is provided by your main school and, for the majority of ETSA placements, St Mary's.

This route leads to QTS only but you can continue your studies in your NQT year (Newly Qualified Teacher) to obtain a PGCE – this is at an additional cost but still tends to be less expensive than the PGCE route.
