HTTP SCITT training allows teachers to have a gradual start to teaching. You will begin the course with intensive observation in your subject area and a focus on your subject curriculum, developing the necessary awareness, skills and understanding of what it means to be a great teacher of Physical Education.
At HTTP, we pride ourselves on the personalised support available in our programme. You will complete a Subject Knowledge Audit in our summer induction, prior to starting the course. This allows our subject leaders time to personalise the fortnightly subject development sessions based on your needs and the gaps in your foundation knowledge.
It is our aim to develop three branches in your training year: your understanding of how students’ learn; your subject knowledge development and your classroom practice. You will be expected to read current generic and subject specific pedagogy so you are able to plan and sequence lessons with competence and predict sound lesson outcomes. We also encourage you to join your subject association, to lead school clubs and to network with other teacher of PE to maximise your potential.
Fortnightly subject leader sessions take place in our Partner schools; they provide opportunities for you to look at live lessons, teaching strategies and plans; they also allow our subject leaders to model teaching, ready for you to emulate. We believe that teaching is a passion and a craft; we will help you find your teacher identity to become the best practitioner you can be.
The PE curriculum has a range of health and safety requirements. We aim to expose you to develop as many skills as possible and as part of your fees, we will pay towards one additional external qualification, such as Level 1 and 2 Trampolining, to help close your gaps and ensure you are highly employable.
PE training places are limited and go fast. At HTTP, we are able to apply for additional PE places if you have a good A Level pass in Maths, English, Science, MFL, History, Geography or Computer Science. Your training would be in two subjects, with PE taking priority. Please contact us via our website for more information regarding this.
We provide a PGCE for all trainees based upon 2 written modules, a viva and an eportfolio of evidence. Trainees also gain 60 level 7 credits (at M level).
