The Tudor Grange SCITT programme blends theory and practice, helping you to confidently develop your understanding and skills. All aspects of pedagogy will be covered, and you will have opportunities to watch outstanding practitioners demonstrating their skills in the classroom.
You will learn:
-How to create and maintain a positive climate for learning
-How learning happens
-How to assess the impact of learning
-How to ensure a culture of inclusion
-What is means to be a teaching professional
Every trainee has a personal Subject Lead, who will work with you to ensure you feel confident in understanding and applying all aspects of the curriculum. They are outstanding practitioners, who work across the Tudor Grange Trust, enabling colleagues in their subject areas to learn from true expert colleagues. Learning is bespoke, so that all of your prior experiences are considered carefully and your progress is purposefully enabled. Upon completing the course you will feel confident in all aspects of professional school life.
Feedback is given frequently, as observations are an integral aspect your development. Feedback will be both formal and informal and always based around helping you to reflect on your own strengths and next steps. Reporting is a regular feature of the programme, so you can be sure that you will know how you’re doing at all times, and that there are a team of people around you who are able to provide you with support. The final recommendation for QTS is based around a combination of reports and your classroom practice.
Most Professional Studies sessions are held on site, with opportunities for mini practice episodes also blended into the programme, so you build your confidence and expertise in a cumulative way throughout the course.
We also work with a delivery partner for the PGCE element of the programme and all of the learning here is aimed at developing your pedagogical understanding. It is a complimentary programme, which enhances both the depth of your understanding and your classroom practice.
Once accepted onto the course, you will identify your chosen pathway, either:
- Early Years & KS 1
