Train to Teach with Great Sankey TSA

Welcome to School Direct PGCE with Great Sankey Teaching School Alliance.

This route into teaching is a hands-on teacher training experience. We work in partnership with the University of Cumbria to provide a tailor made PGCE programme which will equip teachers with the expertise they will need to flourish in their careers. 

We pride ourselves on the supportive nature of our programme, partnerships and above all our trainees who go on to become great teachers.

Our trainee teachers thrive because of the superb guidance and professional development they receive from their outstanding mentors. Many have gone on to gain employment in schools within our Alliance or at schools across Cheshire and Merseyside.
