Course summary

General Primary with PE “The quality of training across the partnership is outstanding. A fully comprehensive training programme is in place and ensures complete coverage of the primary curriculum.” Ofsted 2017

Our SCITT route provides all trainees with a blend of school experience underpinned by an innovative and thorough taught programme, leading to the award of QTS and a PGCE, with our partners Leicester University.

Trainees spend the greatest proportion of their time in school – (please see ‘how placements work’) and will be able to observe sports coaches within the trust to develop their own PE practice. There will be 4 focussed sessions throughout the year with a recognised sports teacher where you can learn how to plan and run effective PE lessons.

You will undertake research into effective PE delivery, looking in particular at Veronica Sherbourne’s approach to delivering PE, and attend PE leadership sessions to map out PE across the year.

The taught programme is delivered by outstanding practitioners, who work as teachers in our schools and as leaders of their subjects for the partnership. This includes English, Maths, Science, Teaching & Learning, Inclusion and the Foundation Subjects – all up to date theory and practice that is being used with high impact in our schools now. As practising teachers who also guide other schools, our trainers have a wealth of current experience and ideas that you can use. The taught days, alongside a range of fun and immersive opportunities, including our residential, will ensure that you remain motivated throughout the programme and driven to become an exceptional teacher: “Laura, Tom and Cath inspired us throughout the programme, kept us going when things got hard and gave us new and innovative ideas to try in the classroom”- ILTT Trainee

Leicester University provide the PGCE qualification, which brings 60 masters credits. Sessions on campus give you academic underpinning to your teaching practice, with two assignments that weave into your experience in school.

Your progress across the course is supported and monitored by our highly experienced Professional Tutor team, who will give both pastoral and developmental support over the year, ensuring that you are able to make the most of all elements of the course.

School placements

General Primary with PE Our General Primary with PE course will require you working in two contrasting schools across our partnership, depending on the location selected (Don’t worry, if you apply to a Leicestershire course, we won’t be sending you to Nottingham and visa versa). We call these placements your host and your alternative school. You will complete your placement at your host school in the Autumn and Summer term, whilst your alternative placement will be completed in the Spring term. With each placement, you will change year group to cover these 3 age phases: Year 1 and 2; Year 3 and 4; Year 5 and 6, ensuring you gain a variety of experience so you can work out where you would like to be when you qualify as a teacher.

Interview process

“Leaders are constantly evaluating the recruitment and selection processes to make sure they attract high-quality candidates with the skills, the moral purpose and the ‘staying power’ to be a successful teacher” – Ofsted 2017

Selecting the right people to train with us in our schools is of utmost importance. Our interviews take place within our schools and we aim to make you feel relaxed enough to show us who you really are. The interview includes includes:

  • an opportunity to find out more about us
  • a formal interview in which we find out more about you and establish whether you are suitable to train with us and in our schools;
  • A lesson that you will pre-plan and deliver to a small group of children (Full details are provided prior to the interview)
  • Safeguarding & identity checks.

Applying to our course

International candidates

You’ll need the right to study 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 study in the UK, you may need to apply for a visa. The main visa for fee-paying courses (those that you have to pay for) is the Student visa.

To apply for a Student visa, you’ll need to be sponsored by your training provider.

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.
