What is a SCITT?

SCITT stands for School Centred Initial Teacher Training. We were accredited as a SCITT in 2014 and recommend trainees who successfully complete their training for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). We work with a University on the academic award of a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).

How can I fund my Teacher Training?

Tuition fee loans are available from Student Finance England. More details can be found on our finance page. Individual calculations for maintenance loans can be found at Get Into Teaching. Some courses may be eligible for bursaries or scholarships.

How do I know if am able to teach the subject I want to with my degree?

For secondary, if your degree isn’t in the subject you wish to teach, we would like to see your degree having 50% content in your desired subject. However, all applications are looked at on an individual basis and we can take A-Levels into account. If you are applying for an eligible subject, we may require you to undertake a Subject Knowledge Enhancement course.

For primary, you can apply with a degree in any subject.

How do I know if my oversees qualifications are equivalent to the required UK qualifications?

Get into Teaching can help check that your qualifications meet the required UK standards. We will need you to have a statement of comparability from UK ENIC www.enic.org.uk) for any oversees qualifications. If you find that you do not hold qualifications that are equivalent to UK GCSEs in English, maths or science, you will need to underake an equivalency test in the subject(s).

When will I find out my placement school?

We will let you know your placement school during your induction at the start of the course.

When will I be expected to teach?

Whilst you are in your placement school from an early stage of the course, you will not be expected to go straight into teaching! You will observe classes and work with teachers and then with your mentor start to build up to teaching the class. Every trainee is different, and will progress at different rates.

Will I be guaranteed a job at the end of the course?

We cannot gurantee that you will get a job once you qualify, however we will offer you support with applications and signpost you to vacancies within the Multi-Academy Trust we are part of and externally.
