Are you wanting to expand your own horizon?

Here at the Huddersfield Horizon SCITT, we firmly believe that young people have the fundamental right to the BEST education, led by the BEST practitioners. We are strongly committed to recruiting the most passionate and dedicated people to join our professional and supportive teacher training programme.

School Centred Initial Teacher Training

SCITT courses generally last one year, with many including a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) and/or Master’s-level credits.

Training as part of a SCITT gives you the opportunity to learn ‘on the job’ from the very beginning. You will benefit from working and learning every day in a school and getting an immediate insight into what teaching involves.

But this doesn’t mean you’ll be teaching classes before you’ve had a chance to find your feet. You’ll have an extended support network of experienced teachers and mentors on hand to help you throughout your course. The school you’re with won’t ask you teach classes unsupported until they think you’re ready.

The PGCE element of the programme carries 60 credits towards a Masters qualification and is accredited through Sheffield Hallam University. Sessions are facilitated at the SCITT Centre.
