School Direct

Atlas Teaching School Alliance, led by the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation welcomes high calibre graduates and career changers seeking to join the teaching profession through our School Direct programmes.

Working in partnership with Bromley Schools Collegiate we offer a high quality and unique one year training programme that draws on Haberdashers’ Aske’s and Bromley Schools Collegiate’s expertise in educating teachers and educational leaders.

Our programme is characterised by a combined focus on skills, knowledge and the insights offered by educational research into the most effective pedagogical approaches and our experience of developing teachers and leaders for over 20 years. This is enhanced by rewarding experiences gained in the diverse school settings within our Alliance. You will have the opportunity to make a difference from the very start of your programme and will be mentored by expert leaders so that you have bespoke support at every step.

Atlas recruits for several secondary schools within the Boroughs of Lewisham and Bexley, therefore an application to us means that you automatically have the potential to work in a range of schools.

We are currently recruiting for School Direct training positions starting in September 2019 on the salaried and training routes for the following subjects:


Design & Technology
