    I'm starting the program September, anyone else doing Schools Direct with PGCE? I'm also doing the primary maths specialism and I'm on the salaried program. How about you all? What preparation have you started (if any!)? And have you spoken to previous candidates and seen examples of their work? Etc.

    I am having an interview in October to start September 2016. who is your provider as I'd love to do math specialism but unfortunately can't find any provider which is located within an adequate distance to where I live.

    I'm doing same but non salaried. I've just spent 3 days organising my folders and started my first assignment. Feeling excited but had no contact from mentor whom I asked if I could help set up class with. How are your mentors?

    Is there a difference in the 'structure' of the course between the salaried and non-salaried Schools Direct route to teaching (asides from the obvious that one offers a salary and the other doesn't?)

    No. The DfE sets the same requirements for all teaching training courses regardless of the route. A salaried course can therefore be exactly the same as a non-salaried course. The fact that salaried trainees are employed as unqualified teachers means that the expectations will inevitably be different, though.

    The difference as far as I was aware is that the salaried places rarely also give PCGE - just QTS, whereas the nonsalaried places give you both. Could just be the course that I'm on though.

    UCAS indicates that only about 29 course providers don't offer a PGCE, so the vast majority of salaried School Direct providers seem to do so.
