GITEP is proud to be the accrediting provider with four School Direct Lead Schools. Our partner schools include some of the highest performing schools in the country. All our School Direct Lead Schools are designated teaching schools.
|Balcarras School||Balcarras School||14B|
|Pate’s Grammar School||Odyssey Teaching School Alliance||1ZB|
|Marling School||Cotswold Edge Teaching Alliance||26P|
|The Cotswold School||The Cotswold Teaching School Partnership||2EH|
Trainees recruited through School Direct follow the same programme as other GITEP trainees. All the places offered are School Direct Fee Paying places. There are no School Direct Salaried places currently available but schools do request these over the year so please contact us if you are interested in a Salaried place.
All trainees have to have placements in at least two schools and these will offer contrasting experiences. The School Direct partnerships work in slightly different ways:
Trainees will be placed at Balcarras School and one other GITEP school.
Pate’s Grammar School (Odyssey Teaching School Alliance)
Trainees will have one placement in a grammar school and one in a comprehensive. It is likely that trainees will be placed at either Pate’s Grammar School and All Saints Academy or Sir Thomas Rich’s School and Tewkesbury School.
Marling School (Cotswold Edge Teaching Alliance)
Trainees will be placed at two schools within the CETA partnership: Marling School, Stroud High School, Cheltenham Bournside School, Severn Vale School and Marlwood School. It is likely that trainees will have one placement in a grammar school and one in a comprehensive.
The Cotswold School (The Cotswold Teaching School Partnership)
The Cotswold School will be offering its first School Direct places in 2017/18 and it is likely that trainees will be placed at The Cotswold School and one other GITEP school, with both placements being in a comprehensive school.
