School Direct Initial Teacher Training

Belle Vue Girls' Academy is the lead academy for the School Direct programme of the Bradford Diocesan Academies Trust (BDAT).

The trust secondary schools are: Belle Vue Girls’ Academy, Immanuel College, Buttershaw Business and Enterprise College and Bradford Forster Academy.

All schools within the trust are driven by a set of shared values which guide how we operate, teach and support each other.

Our values are aspiration, inclusion, excellence, compassion and resilience.

Two of the schools are Church of England schools and two are of no faith. However we all follow traditional values of respect and trust.

BDAT Secondary schools in partnership with Bingley Grammar School and the Beckfoot Trust are able to offer a unique and exciting opportunity to train and become a teacher.

Working with such partners is an exciting way of training to become a teacher and because our aim is to provide the best education for Bradford children our trainees benefit from the support of some of the best practitioners in Bradford district.

If you’re thinking about becoming a teacher, you’ve come to the right place.
