The Primary School Direct course through Mercia Learning Alliance is overseen by Dore Primary School, Sheffield. Dore is a large primary school in south-west Sheffield, and has been at the heart of School Centred Initial Teacher Training for over 20 years. Dore Primary was a founding member of the ‘National SCITT in Outstanding Primary Schools’ in the late 1990s, and have been advocates of the school-centred approach to teacher training ever since.

We hope that you will choose to start your journey with Mercia Learning Alliance and help deliver outstanding education for Sheffield’s future.
