If you are keen to become a teacher and work with children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, then train to teach on our School Direct programme.
Chadsgrove Teaching School offers an exceptional opportunity to qualify as a Primary teacher, but with additional enhanced skills to effectively teach pupils with SEND in both mainstream and specialist settings, through our School Direct programme.
The Chadsgrove/University of Birmingham Primary (SEND) course is recognised as a programme of national excellence.
The course integrates whole day sessions at the university (which involve a blend of lectures, subject workshops, seminars, tutorials or group-working sessions) with school-based training and teaching experience in both mainstream primary school and special school settings, enabling you to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) with expertise in Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
If you have a 1st or 2:1 degree you can apply for our one year School Direct teacher training programme with Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), which includes 60 Masters level credits. Students are eligible for a loan to contribute towards the cost of tuition fees (subject to the Student Loan Company’s criteria) and those with a 1st class degree will qualify for a bursary of £3000.

On completion of the course, all of our previous students have gained immediate employment. Hear from one of our previous trainees here.
