Are you wanting to join the best profession in the world?
Do you have the passion, empathy and knowledge to make a difference to the lives of young people?
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 of people to join our professional and supportive teacher training programme.
Our Programme is at the forefront of educational research and practice, led by specialist colleagues who are currently working in a range of educational settings. They can share with you their wealth of experience and skills, to support you in fulfilling your teaching potential.
The Huddersfield Horizon SCITT is part of the South Pennine Academies Trust and we are a Partnership of schools working together across the West Yorkshire and Oldham region. Collaboratively we ensure that we provide our trainees with high quality training in a range of diverse educational settings
All of our schools have been quality assured to ensure that you will be working with and fully supported by colleagues who have extensive experience of ITT and like us, a real drive and passion for twenty first century teaching and learning.
You will be placed in one of our partnership schools for the academic year (with a half termly second placement). Here you will spend four days a week working alongside specialists in your host school to gradually build up your confidence and skill set in taking responsibility of your classes. You will be fully supported by your host teachers and a subject mentor who will meet with you at least once a week. You will also be assigned a subject/phase tutor who will visit you at least half a term to discuss your progress and support you in becoming an Outstanding teacher.
One day a week you will come to the Centre (based in the fantastic South Pennine Academies’ Business and Training Centre) for your Core Training. This is where we will re-group and deconstruct your school based experience, whilst covering the key concepts of Teaching and Learning to enable you to meet the Teachers’ Standards.
Through our close networks, we will support you throughout your teaching career with our NQT (Newly Qualified Teacher); RQT (Recently Qualified Teacher) and Middle Leadership Programmes. We understand that teaching is a vocation and through our strong relationships with our partnering schools and with our trainees, we will guide you to the opportunities available throughout your teaching career (including Leadership roles).
The Huddersfield Horizon is a team and we value you as an individual. You will not be a name passing through the system, you are unique and you matter to us.
