Shanidar School Direct
Shanidar School Direct is a group of fourteen schools across Bradford, Keighley, Leeds and Skipton. Eight mainstream schools and six special schools. The lead school, Southfield Special School is located close to the city centre of Bradford. All schools are part of Shanidar Teaching School Alliance.
There is a strong commitment to inclusion and the Bradford Primary with SEND 5-11 programme will give trainees opportunity to train in mainstream settings and also pursue a specialism in SEND should they choose. Four potential pathways to choose from are:
- Autism (communication and interaction);
- Generic SEND (cognition and learning);
- Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH); and
- Sensory (VI / HI).
We are proud of all the schools in our partnership. If you choose to train with us, you will gain experience of a range of schools in the partnership. We offer high quality PGCE training through School Direct (unsalaried). We can tell you more during our free local briefing events.
All trainees who successfully complete the Leeds Programme with us will be recommended for Qualified Teacher Status and will have the opportunity to gain a PGCE at Masters Level 7. This is an excellent springboard into the profession.
Shanidar School Direct offer the fee-funded/unsalaried training route.
