Welcome to S.A.L.S (Salford Alliance of Learning Schools)

The Salford Alliance of Learning Schools (S.A.L.S.), led by lead school Moorside Community Primary School and in conjunction with Manchester Metropolitan University and University of Manchester are excited to have the opportunity to deliver the 'School Direct (SD) Programme'.  School Direct enables graduates to develop close links with local schools as well as receiving academic and university support whilst training to teach.

Our schools and the needs of our pupils are diverse, but we are united by a common theme: A belief that we can make a difference.

S.A.L.S. are a group of fifteen schools that are focussed on inspiring the future generation of outstanding teachers through diverse, high quality teacher training.

 Our alliance covers a broad demographic within the city of Salford, and encapsulates the diverse educational needs, challenges and rewards that all teachers can be expected to be presented with.

This is what we believe makes us unique, and is what provides you with the very possible start to your teaching journey.

Working closely with Manchester Metropolitan University and University of Manchester, our School Direct programme will see you gain your PGCE in the very best way.

We believe that diversity is a strength and that by working in a wide range of settings each with unique challenges and rewards - you as a student will get the very best possible experience to start you on your teaching journey.

That journey will be challenging, possibly the most challenging year of your career, but the support that you will have will be outstanding.  For us, your training goes way beyond learning how to deliver a curriculum.  It's about learning how to change people's lives. 

If making a difference to the future generation is what you want to do and training with an exceptionally varied alliance is how you want to do it then S.A.L.S. could be for you.

We don't just teach... We INSPIRE!
