Tykes TSA

School Direct and ITT


Working in partnership with Sheffield Hallam University we provide high quality teacher training with the Alliance offering high quality teacher training to graduates across a range of Key Stages.
The partners are, all located within a 20-mile radius of each other within South Yorkshire. We offer the opportunity to work with dedicated professionals who are passionate about providing the best educational experience for future generations of young people. We believe that the School Direct route enables us to select the best candidates and to provide the best support.

All schools in the Alliance pride themselves on ‘growing their own’ and currently a significant proportion of the workforce trained in their current schools, either through the traditional PGCE route, the Graduate Teacher Training programme or more recently through School Direct. Of these, a sizeable majority are promoted point holders, up to and including at Senior Leadership level.
