Our Training Programme



We offer a one year programme designed to enable trainee teachers to meet the Teachers’ Standards in addition to the academic award, PGCE. The training programme combines school experience with Professional Studies and Subject Knowledge development. We believe this blended approach of school based learning and academic study gives trainee teachers the ‘best of both worlds’; the opportunity to link theory and practice, thus developing reflective practitioners. The training programme will consist of at least 60 training days.


School Direct (salaried) training programme:


School Direct (salaried) is available for trainee teachers who have the skills and expertise to teach from the outset. Each trainee teacher is based in a school and will be employed as a Unqualified teacher. Training fees will be paid by the DfE.


SCITT (tuition fee) training programme:


Although trainee teachers will be based in a school they are not employed by the school. Fees must be paid by the trainee teacher, either through student finance, training bursaries or scholarships. more information about funding can be found here.
