The Leicestershire Secondary SCITT was formed in 2013 and has been one of the leading teacher training providers since. You can find out more information About Us or read some of our numerous Success Stories. Read below for some of the reasons we believe you should train with the Leicestershire Secondary SCITT.

When you become a member of the Leicestershire Secondary SCITT you also become a full member of the university of Leicester. The PGCE is delivered by the university tutors. You have access to all of their resources – the LRC, Welfare, Student Support and everything any other trainee would do.
The SCITT IS part of the Leicester Teaching School, who are responsible for delivering CPD to teachers from the city and county. This means that we have all the skills needed to help you become the best teacher you can be.

Why Teach?

Take a look at why you should teach, and if you would be a great leader of the future.

Why Teach?
School based training gives you maximum time in schools (over 30 weeks in schools) – in week 2 you will be on your first placement. But don’t worry, you are not expected to teach until you are ready. You will spend 4 days at your school and 1 day at the SCITT (or University of Leicester) learning the theory that all great teachers need to know.

We really believe that our course offers the best of both worlds – rich and varied school based training with the academic rigour of the PGCE through the University of Leicester. We have the skills and expertise to help you become a great teacher that can change lives.
