Our Initial Teacher Training programme lasts for a full academic year. Trainees are placed in a main host school on the first day of the school year. It is important that trainees experience the full cycle of a school year and feel included/part of the school and the staff team.
As a trainee, you will be in your main school for four days a week and on the fifth day you will attend core training at the SCITT centre. The training will cover the core ITT content and the current national priorities. The programme has some flexibility so that it can be personalised to your specific training needs.
In addition, trainees will attend phase/subject specific days throughout the year which will focus on the pedagogy and explicit teaching of the chosen phase or subject.
You will have a second teaching placement for half a term in a contrasting school. In addition, you will have further experience of a special school setting (between 1-2 weeks) and opportunities to explore the Key Stages prior to and post your own phase.
