Bitterne Park Teaching School Alliance

Wednesday 19th October 2016, 17:30 – 19:00

Sixth Form Theatre, Bitterne Park School, Copsewood Road, Southampton, SO18 1BU


The Bitterne Park Teaching School Alliance is a growing partnership of primary & secondary schools across Hampshire and Wiltshire offering high quality teacher training.  Our School Direct route is delivered in partnership with the University of Southampton and allows our trainees to follow a school-led programme leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) validated by the University of Southampton. The programme also contributes towards Master’s level accreditation.


We are holding an information evening for anyone considering a career in general primary teaching or secondary art, biology, business, chemistry, computing, dance, DT, drama, English, geography, history, maths, MFL, music, PE, physics or RE.


This event is intended to give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about our School Direct teacher training programme and to find out more about how to apply to the Bitterne Park Teaching School Alliance.  Representatives from the University of Southampton and our alliance partner schools will be present to answer your questions.  Places are limited so please register to attend by emailing
