About the training provider

We are a partnership of schools in the Bishop’s Stortford, Sawbridgeworth and Harlow area who collaborate to provide teacher training for graduates who would like to teach in either the primary or secondary schools.

Our aim is to spot and nurture the outstanding teachers of the future, giving them the best possible training and support in their early career. Our training is led exclusively by serving practitioners in our family of schools and training takes place entirely in school settings.

We offer training in a wide range of secondary school subjects and primary age groups leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Our training pathways are tailor made, with salaried and fee-paying options to gain QTS and the possibility of gaining experience in a second subject area to improve employability.

You can depend on the best support in BSET schools. Training is hard work and you will need the support of an excellent mentor. All of our Teacher and Subject Mentors are excellent practitioners and they are very experienced as we are used to working with over fifty teacher trainees every year.

You will also get to work with fantastic, positive young people - our area is culturally diverse and educational aspirations are high amongst young people and their parents. Our BSET placement schools are some of the highest achieving in the country.

Interview process

You will have an interview with the employing school’s headteacher which is likely to involve teaching a lesson to either a KS1 or 2 class. You will also have an interview with the SCITT Director , and carry our a short literacy and numeracy task.

International candidates

You’ll need the right to work in the UK. You already have this if, for example, you:

  • are an Irish citizen
  • have settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme (you may still be able to apply)
  • have indefinite leave to remain in the UK

If you do not already have the right to work in the UK, you may need to apply for a visa. The main visa for salaried courses is the Skilled Worker visa.

To apply for a Skilled Worker visa you need to be sponsored by your employer.

Sponsorship is not available for this course.

If you need a visa, filter your course search to find courses with visa sponsorship.

Alternatively, check if you’re eligible for a different type of visa, such as a Graduate or Family visa, that allows you to train to be a teacher without being sponsored.

International qualifications

If your qualifications come from a non-UK institution, we may want to see a ‘statement of comparability’ from UK ENIC. This will show us how they compare to UK qualifications.

You can call Get Into Teaching on 0800 389 2500 for:

  • guidance on the UK equivalents of your qualifications
  • a free statement of comparability once you’ve submitted your application (if we ask you for this)

Training with disabilities and other needs

Our SCITT welcomes all with out prejudice and as such caters for a wide range of trainee disability. The SCITT recognises it has a duty to make reasonable adjustments to prevent a disabled person from being placed at a substantial disadvantage by any physical feature of the premises, or by any provision, criterion or practice of the school. Provision is made through occupational health referral for Trainees who need additional support.
