St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School Chiswick

Train to Teach

St Mary's is a Strategic Partner School within the West London Teaching School Alliance (WLTSA). The WLTSA will be recruiting candidates for over 150 School Direct teacher training places (both primary and secondary) for 2018-19, of which one will be based at St Mary's.  All the St Mary's programmes lead to the award of Qualified Teacher Status. The programme is also salaried.

The WLTSA website  (Initial Teacher Training tab) includes tables listing all the WLTSA teacher training programmes including those at St Mary's. By clicking on the programme information button, you will be able access further information about the specific course requirements and information about how to apply.


Please note that the WLTSA ‘drop-in’ Train to Teach Recruitment Fair & Information Evening has already taken place this year. The next one will take place in October 2019.

This annual event is attended by a wide range of London teacher training providers (both Teaching School Alliances and universities) and you will be able to visit their stalls to ask them about their vacancies for the next academic year. There is also an informative talk about different routes into teaching, finance, entry requirements, how to interpret what you see when you search for programmes on UCAS and how to apply.
