WHY CHOOSE THIS ROUTE?
Our approach is based on what our partnership Headteachers, who all lead “good” and “outstanding” schools are looking for in their Newly Qualified Teachers. They do not require the more expensive University based PGCE qualifications (although our course does include the opportunity to gain PGC Master’s accreditation) they far prefer teachers who have spent the whole year in school experiencing the full calendar cycle of the school year and being involved in every aspect of the professional teacher’s role in their schools. They find teachers trained by serving outstanding teachers this way are better prepared for the rigours of qualified teaching and progress more quickly in their careers in their schools. It is their preferred route for recruiting their NQTs.
WHAT IS TRAINING IN A SCITT LIKE?
You will work for a year mostly in one school slowly gaining more experience and responsibility in the classroom and being trained by serving outstanding teachers designated as Specialist Leaders of Education by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL). You will spend a short time teaching in at least one other school too.
