Woodrush Teaching School Alliance

Train to teach


School Direct can be seen as more hands on, getting the chance to learn ‘on the job’. However you shouldn’t worry about being thrown in at the deep end. You will be part of a team from the very start, receiving intensive support from experienced teachers and mentors. That means you will not be teaching classes unsupported until the school thinks you are ready. Another great thing about School Direct is that unlike the University led-routes you will know the group of schools that you will be placed at and in some cases exactly which school. This gives you the opportunity if you so wish to go into the school/department before your course starts to meet the team, observe some lessons and help you settle in quickly, removing any nerves you may have. However it is not an expectation that you complete this if you have commitments. Follow the link for more information.

Leasowes Students @ BMW Championships

On Thursday 19th September over 25 lucky students enjoyed an elite experience at one of the countries most prestigious golf courses.

The students had front row seats to see some of the world’s best golfers competing at the premier European Tour event.

Students represented Invictus from Crestwood, Kinver, Leasowes, Pedmore and Wombourne, they behaved impeccably and took the opportunity to get autographs, signed gloves and balls AND selfies with some of the best players on the planet.

A highlight of the day (aside from the GREAT weather) was the 10 minute chat our students had with Sky Sports presenter Nick Doherty who had just finished a live interview with Solheim Cup winner Georgia Hall. Nick spoke to our students at length about their day and their passion for golf and sport!
