Transform School Direct is a quality teacher training programme with an outstanding team of school based mentors and practitioners that support our trainees throughout the year. When you join the programme you will be part of something special. In partnership with our member schools, we have created a supportive, nurturing programme that treats you as one of the team from day one.
You will have access to a range of resources and specialist support that will help shape your professional practice and ensure you are classroom ready by the end of your training year.
Applying to the Transform School Direct Programme

We have asked some of our past trainees to share their journey here.
Our Nottingham and Derby Open Days
Throughout the year we host School Direct Open Days at our lead schools, Sneinton C of E Primary in Nottingham and Allenton Community Primary School in Derby. On these days you can observe classes in progress, meet with current trainees and members of our programme team to gain first hand experience of the programme. A tour of the school brings to life the hands-on nature of school based teacher training and to have the opportunity to ask questions directly with staff and trainees will help you decide if this is the route for you.
