Teacher training

We are one of the oldest and largest Teaching Schools in the region, training around 100 trainees every year, and working with over 60 local schools.

Training that prepares you for life in the classroom

There are lots of ways to get into teaching but at Sheffield Teaching School Alliance we offer a School Direct route. This means you get a great combination of both academic learning and hands-on experience in the classroom over the course of a year.  

Our lead secondary school is Silverdale secondary school - named as Top State Secondary School in the North in 2018 - and our lead primary school is Malin Bridge. Both are rated as 'Outstanding' by Ofsted. We recruit with our partner schools across Sheffield, the Peak District and North Derbyshire and they are all highly experienced in training teachers and have been involved with Sheffield Hallam University and the University of Sheffield for many years.

STSA & School Direct

School Direct began in 2012 and is now fully established in many schools throughout the country. Sheffield Teaching School Alliance is one of the largest providers of School Direct in the region and has an excellent reputation.
