We are very pleased that you are considering a career in teaching through our School Direct Teacher Training Programme.
Becoming a teacher takes a special type of person, with the moral purpose to want to make a difference in young people’s lives. The difference you will make to so many people as a teacher can be huge. Teachers change lives for the better.
With our School Direct programme, you will be supported and encouraged by some of the strongest schools in Stockton. You will have access to the most up to date training from practising school leaders and from York Saint John University, who are a highly respected teacher training provider both regionally and nationally. You will be encouraged to be creative and innovative in your approach and we expect that you will go onto a successful career as an outstanding teacher and school leader of the future.
If you have any questions about our Teaching School Alliance, our courses or your application, please do not hesitate to contact me personally. 
I look forward to meeting you.
Chris Aitkin, Director of Campus Stockton Teaching Alliance.
