Our trainees receive core teacher training via weekly training days which cover the nuts and bolts of teaching plus a week block of on the EYFS curriculum. Sessions focus on areas such as assessment, behaviour management, special educational needs, legal responsibilities, inspiring teaching and many more. These are all delivered by experts in their field, often practicing teachers, so you be confident that the content is both up to date and real life!

Our EYFS primary specific training covers skills you will need focusing on the 7 different areas of learning and development of the EYFS (Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Physical Development, Expressive Arts and Design and Understanding the World) plus additional sessions on the learning environment, characteristics of effective learning, teaching and assessing phonics, core and ancillary subject development.

After the winter break you will be on your contrasting school placement teaching in key stage 1. You are then back to you original placement after Easter working on your weekly targets with “your” classes. As you are in school full time, you will feel like a member of staff! We also include enhancement experiences in KS2 provision and in a nursery setting for 0-3 provision ensuring that you have a clear understanding of the progression of children’s learning from Birth to the end of their Primary phase.

What’s a SCITT?

Interview process

At Yorkshire and Humber Teacher Training we believe that our children deserve the very best teachers and therefore our selection process is rigorous. It consists of four elements:

  • interview

-taught session

-grammar & arithmetic test

-written task

These four elements combine to allow us to assess your potential to train to teach with Yorkshire and Humber Teacher Training. The interview allows us to get to know you as a person, your interests and rationale for applying. The taught session enables you to show you natural flair and how you interact with children. The written task and the grammar & arithmetic tests will demonstrate your abilities in these essential skills.

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.
