The Pennine Teaching School Alliance offers teacher training in Kirklees. We work closely with Huddersfield Univerity, The Kirklees and Calderdale SCITT and local schools to provide a high quality route into teaching. There are two teacher training routes.

School Direct (Unsalaried) is for high-quality graduates who want to be part of a school team from day one. You may be eligible for a bursary or a scholarship to support you while you train. Tuition fees apply.

School Direct (Salaried) is an employment-based route for high-quality experienced graduates with at least three years’ work experience. You will earn a salary while you train.

You can find information about the application process at or by searching for “get into teaching”.
