To apply for Schools Direct you will need to complete the online application on the UCAS Website at www.UCAS.com. If you would like to be considered for our School Direct places you would need to select St John Bosco School as your lead school when applying (Provider Code 1FU). The deadline for applications is 15th June 2018. We will be holding our first round of interviews in November, but there will be additional interview dates across the course of the academic year.
We are looking to recruit talented candidates who have the qualities and attributes suited to a career in teaching and the drive and ambition to make it happen.
The sorts of personal qualities we are looking for are:
As a condition of offer all students must pass tests in Literacy and Numeracy prior to starting the course. You will also be required to have school experience. If you do not currently have school experience you may still apply but must state how you intend to gain this.
Subject enhancement courses are available for some secondary subjects. If your degree subject does not link to your chosen teaching subject, it is recommended that you undertake a subject knowledge enhancement course (SKE) before you begin training.
Sometimes it can be difficult to gain school experience. With that in mind, you can gain School Experience with our Alliance prior to your Initial Teaching Training (ITT) year. Enquiries should be made to Mrs Jane Kennedy.
In order to join us via School Direct, candidates should apply through the following link.
It is advised that candidates have approximately 10 days experience in a secondary school setting. Having some experience in a school is an advantage as it will assist you throughout the recruitment process. If you haven’t had any school experience, this should not prevent you from applying but would be made a condition of any offer. As previously stated we may be able to signpost you to opportunities across our Alliance.
Don’t worry! Candidates who can demonstrate that they have an aptitude for teaching during their interview, but who don’t quite meet the university’s requirements for subject knowledge may be offered an opportunity to complete a Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST) or Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) course before starting teacher training with St John Bosco Teaching School Alliance.
The TSST courses are available in Maths, MFL, Science and Geography.
Some TSST courses are funded by the government.

Whilst there can be no guarantee of employment, our track record is outstanding with 100% in teaching, the majority within Liverpool schools. St John Bosco Teaching School will support you through the application process to secure your first teaching post. Trainees would be required to go through a full and formal application process for any vacancies.
