Laura is a current School Direct trainee. She has a scholarship with the Institute for Physics.

Which training route are you taking and why did you choose this route?

I am training through the Schools Direct route. I chose this route because I think it is the “best of both worlds”. You get information, training and guidance from both the university and front-line professionals currently working in schools. It’s a very supportive route and it is exciting to be in schools right from the beginning on training days with your Schools Direct provider. It is also incredibly helpful that the Schools Direct route puts you in direct contact with schools within the alliance meaning that you can get a very good idea as to where you would like to work in the future, and allowing you to put those seeds out there that you would like to work at these schools. Also you know where your placements are going to be right from the beginning as they will always be within that particular teaching alliance.
