We offer a one-year full-time school-based route to becoming a qualified primary teacher with a specialism in early years (3-7 years old).
Our core aim is to help you become a confident, knowledgeable and highly employable teacher with a passion for working with young children to give them the best starting point in life, whatever their circumstances.
Our high-quality mentors and tutors have extensive practical experience and will help you succeed by offering consistent guidance and personalised support throughout the course.
Alongside the Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), this course also carries a PG Cert awarded by Birmingham City University.
Our partner schools include primary and nursery schools from across Birmingham, Solihull, Coventry and Warwickshire.
The course has been devised to develop high quality teachers to work in EYFS and Key Stage 1, in addition to covering all Teaching Standards, the training includes an emphasis on multi-agency working, leadership in the EYFS, working with 2 year olds, SEN/D, and practitioner research.
The SCITT programme benefits from the direct contributions of Professor Chris Pascal and Professor Tony Bertram from CREC, both highly experienced teacher educators, and a wider team of early years and primary specialists and placement mentors. This course also carries Postgraduate Accreditation (60 Masters Credits) awarded by Birmingham City University.
