    Advice please does anyone know, once you have been accepted by a training provider supposedly starting September 2016 but have not secured a school placement yet how near to September could it be before Its obvious it's not actually going to happen this year many thanks

    Not sure I understand the situation.

    If you've been accepted, you've got a place. The provider will arrange school placements as a matter of course, and if it's school direct I would assume they knew from the minute the offer was made where you would be teaching.

    I think if you've been accepted to be trained under a certain provider, it's their job to place you; I've not heard of a similar situation before but pretty sure they can's turn around and say that you've not secured the placement, therefore you're not starting the course...


    On the other hand, my own experience with School Direct was different: I didn't go to the provider for the interview, instead, I went to the actual schools, and once I've been accepted by the school, the training provider then contacted me.

    Hi thank you for all your help in this matter my experience is the opposite spent exhaustive interview day at a lead school with the training providers and I was really put through my paces as expected I received confirmation I'd been successful and it seems the hunt is now on for a school to train at.

    I had this same situation when I trained. Don't worry they eventually found me a school. You still have to go through an interview process as the school are employing you.
    Have faith in the training provider they work with lots of schools. I was working out of the borough and didn't get a school until May/June.
