Salaried route

If you have a degree and three or more years of work experience in any field, you could earn a salary while you train on a School Direct (salaried) programme. We recruit you directly as a trainee, often with a job in mind. Salaries can vary depending on your chosen subject and the school in which you train. We sometimes accept candidates with fewer than three years’ experience in hard-to-fill subjects or for exceptional applicants.

Unsalaried route

If you are a graduate who wishes to gain the PGCE qualification through the IOE while based in school, this may be the best option. Trainees pay a tuition fee to the Kent and Medway for a one year full-time programme, and are eligible for training bursaries of up to £30,000.
