Get Into Teaching

NCLP Secondary School Direct Programme 

Castle Donington College is a partner of the North Charnwood Learning Partnership (NCLP) and are delighted to welcome any graduate or professional who is considering teaching as a career. We work with Ashmount School, the lead school for the School Direct Programme, and offer secondary school based training at the College and in other schools in Loughborough and the surrounding area. 

School Direct is an innovative training programme open to enthusiastic, high quality graduates or professionals who want to be part of a school team working alongside outstanding practitioners from day one. You may be eligible for a bursary of up to £30,000 to support you while you train, depending on your degree classification and the course you're applying for. Visit the National College for Teaching and Leadership website for more details. 

We are passionate about teacher training. At the centre of our programme is a commitment to provide the best possible education for our young people. We work in partnership with eight local schools and the Universities of Leicester and Loughborough, to ensure the highest quality teacher training programme.
