Led by the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation, Atlas Teaching School Alliance welcomes high-calibre graduates and career changers to train to teach through the School Direct programme. Our accredited school-based Initial Teacher Training (ITT) courses enable participants to work towards Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) with the additional option of pursuing a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). 

We work in close partnership with Tes Institute, an award-winning ITT provider, to deliver a blended programme of face-to-face and online learning. Through an innovative and interactive e-learning platform, trainees develop comprehensive subject knowledge and professional skills while gaining practical teaching experience as an integral member of the school team. 

Our programmes have excellent retention rates with most of our trainee teachers going on to secure permanent teaching positions in our schools. Learn more about what it's like to train with the Haberdashers' Federation.
