Welcome to the Outwood Institute of Education's School Direct Programme


The Outwood Institute of Education offers a School Direct programme that strives to develop, support and celebrate excellent trainee teachers who are well prepared for the profession. Our trainees work alongside innovative, ambitious and student-focused teachers who are passionate about raising standards and transforming lives.


Our high-performing multi-academy trust is partnered with Sheffield Hallam University, Durham University and Leeds Beckett University. We deliver excellent teacher training across the Tees Valley and Yorkshire and the Humber. All of our courses result in a PGCE with QTS.
