We know that there is a lot of confusing terminology in education.

We are a SCITT – a school centred initial teacher training route into teaching. That means that you are being trained by teachers on a course designed by schools. That means we REALLY know what goes on in classrooms and have LOTS of experience embedded in our programme.

We think you’ll want to choose us because:

Our programme is run by teachers for teachers. We know what you are going through and can offer you the practical guidance you need.

Our approach is rooted in the best evidence informed practice, research and theory. Our Trainees are at the cutting edge of educational practice.

With us you get an incredibly holistic experience. In addition to two extended placements in secondary schools you’ll complete 3 more placements in primary, sixth form and special school contexts. With us you get QTS with a deep understanding of the educational landscape and children’s journeys through school. You’ll start your Early Career phase of teaching as prepared as possible.

On top of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) you can complete a Post Graduate Certificate in Education from the University of Leicester and 60 Masters level credits.

Our curriculum includes sessions focused on securing your ECT post, including mock interviews with Headteachers and Senior Leaders to make sure you stand out from the crowd.

Depending on your route you can get paid to train with us. Visit our page on Tuition and Bursaries for more information.
