Hi, first time posting here so thanks for all the help from people who have commented on other posts before that have helped me in the past without meaning to. I've been teaching in Thailand for over 9 years now, all actual schools and not language centres, I completed a PGCEi last year and have been applying for jobs back in the UK. I didn't think the School Direct route would be an option to me as I need a set minimum salary to be able to make coming back feasible, but having looked at the salaries it could be an option. However, having spoken to some people it seems that it's difficult to get on this course unless you're already working at a school. Is this true? And what are other people's experiences of getting onto the School direct (salaried) course. Thank you for your help and sorry if it doesn't really make sense, hope it does.
