Train with us – Initial Teacher Training

Durham Johnston is part of the Think North East School Direct training partnership. Along with four other schools we run a programme through which people can gain Qualified Teaching Status, awarded by Durham University. Trainees benefit from first class support from Subject Mentors, a strong blend of theoretical and practical training as well as feeling part of the wider school community. All of our trainees have gone on to a career in teaching, many of them with us directly.

You can apply to train within the partnership in general or specify that you’d like to train specifically with us. For anyone interested in training with us we welcome visits, please contact the school at marked for the attention of Mr T Patterson.
