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. Link Tutors from the University deliver the PGCE modules at the SCITT Centre-these form four training days throughout the year.
