Train to be a Primary Teacher with School Direct at Elmore Green Primary School


Further detailed information can be found on UCAS, you can search for our profile page from October –


Elmore Green Primary School is working in partnership with Ryders Hayes who are a National Teaching School with a strong culture of staff development.


Together with other local good and outstanding schools we are part of a strong and diverse Teaching School Alliance offering added value to the initial teaching training experience.


The partnership works alongside Birmingham City University (BCU) as our accredited ITT provider.

The Partnership strongly believes in creating a ‘best fit’ between the host school and the School Direct trainee, in the belief that they are one of the staff team and a potential employee. Carefully planned induction and expert mentoring are key to our trainees success.

Training will be delivered in a diverse range of educational settings, including regular training in the lead school from expert facilitators, providing an outstanding ‘hands-on’ school-based experience. A bespoke training package for each trainee, including additional support in specialist subjects, promotes access to all aspects of school life.


Where suitable vacancies arise, an offer of employment at the end of the training will be made by the host school, or assistance given with gainful employment within its alliance of schools. We have extremely high employment rate for our trainees.


Our School Direct trainees feel like members of staff; with support from their peers; the staff and University team; have weekly school practice in their school; and find themselves positioned at the forefront of education, well prepared as much sought after and highly employable teachers.


The Routes


There are two School Direct (SD) routes –
