For the 2018/19 academic year, recruitment to School Direct (salaried) is unrestricted in the majority of subjects, which means that schools are able to recruit to local need as opposed to targets set by the Government. Consequently, at this stage of the 2018/19 recruitment cycle, we are unable to provide the total number of School Direct (salaried) programme places planned for each region of England. The Department expects School Direct training places to be available across all regions of England.

The Department has allocated School Direct (salaried) places in Primary and PE in 2018/19, where recruitment is fixed. The table below sets out the distribution of these places by region.
