Thinking about a career in TEACHING?

Information about the 'Growing Expert Teachers' Consortium for School Direct



Thank you for looking at our website. If you are considering applying for a School Direct placement for 2018/19, we would strongly encourage you to look at what our consortium can offer.

There are six schools in the consortium, working with our accredited partner, Somerset SCITT. Golden Valley is the lead school, working in close partnership with five other North Somerset primary schools including Birdwell School Academy (Long Ashton), Herons' Moor Academy (Weston-super-Mare), St. Anne's CEVA Primary (dual sites at Hewish & West Wick), St. Andrew's CEVC Primary (Congresbury) and Uphill Primary (Weston-super-Mare). There is a possibility that the number of partnership schools will increase due to the number of trainee places allocated to the GET programme for 2018/19.

There is lots of information about what our consortium can offer you - please download the School Direct information booklet which is available below. Alternatively, please contact Kevin Lynch, Headteacher, via telephone or email to discuss things further.
