School based Initial Teacher Training gives you the opportunity to learn hands on within the classroom. School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) is exactly what it sounds like and there really is no better environment to learn the skills of a teacher than in a classroom! 

Our partnership of schools passionately believe that children should be at the centre of education and this ethos is echoed throughout our practical teacher training which is school-based.

The strong engagement of schools within the partnership is evident.’ (Ofsted 2018)

Through our programme you will receive exceptional training and support from outstanding professionals who are experts in their field. All of our training is led by current, outstanding teachers, who are based in our partnership schools, so you know that all of the information that you receive will be relevant and up to date. 

‘The good-quality training, including with trainers of national repute, ensures that trainees are often secure in their subject knowledge and able to manage pupils’ behaviour successfully…The quality of mentoring across the partnership is a particularly strong feature. Training to ensure mentors’ effectiveness is good and is rated highly.’ (Ofsted 2018)

Leaders within the SCITT work hard to ensure that trainees are exceptionally well trained and ready to face the challenges of being a class teacher.

Outstanding leadership has secured good and improving outcomes for trainees.’ (Ofsted 2018) 

This practical and hands on approach to Teacher Training will ensure that you are fully prepared to become an outstanding teacher and take on the challenges of your own class as a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT)!

‘Trainees are prepared well for their NQT year. Trainees enter their NQT year with meaningful and helpful targets.’ (Ofsted 2018)
