“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 / School Direct training 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 Nottingham Trent University.
Trainees spend the greatest proportion of their time in school – please see ‘How placements work’.
Trainees will work alongside others on the 5-11 pathway to ensure that they are also gaining an overview of primary education to recognise their role within the bigger picture of a child’s journey in school.
School based training alongside training sessions and high quality tutoring and mentoring will provide opportunities for trainees to plan, teach and manage learning for children aged 3-7 years. Trainees will therefore have the ability to assess and progress learning, build professional relationships and maintain high quality learning environments.
Specialist sessions will be provided by an SLE in Early Years supported by other relevant personnel to ensure that the trainees have a broad view of the EYFS provision.
. 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
Nottingham Trent 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.
