SCITT Training Programme (Tuition Fee)
+

Working in partnership with schools in Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire, we train the next generation of primary teachers and future primary school leaders.

The SCITT programme is distinctive from more traditional routes in that trainees spend the majority of their time in schools. Trainees meet weekly at their training venue depending on their location. This approach to learning  equips trainees with the knowledge, skills and understanding of the key aspects required to be an effective teacher.

We hope that trainees will form very close attachments to schools, their staff and, in particular, the person nominated to be the Mentor during the training. 

Trainees will experience two contrasting school placements in once of the following age ranges.

Typically training with us will take place across the age ranges of 3 to 7 or 5 to 11.

How much will it cost?

This route is open to all graduates and is funded by tuition fees paid by the trainee. You would be required to pay tuition fees of £9,000 and can apply to the Student Loans Company  for tuition fee and maintenance loans. Secondary trainees may be eligible for a bursary from the Department for Education, or a scholarship dependent on the training subject and degree class. 

Overseas candidates

We welcome candidates who have studied outside the UK but trainees will need to check first with ENIC to establish if your qualifications are equivalent to UK GCSEs, A levels or an undergraduate degree.

Candidates must meet the entry criteria below

• a standard equivalent to a grade 4 in the GCSE examinations in English and mathematics
• those who intend to train to teach pupils aged 3 to 11 additionally have achieved a standard equivalent to a grade 4 in the GCSE examination in a science subject
• hold a first degree of a United Kingdom higher education institution or equivalent qualification

What other requirements are there?.

All candidates must apply for teacher training through DfE Apply or UCAS.

All candidates will take part in a rigorous selection process designed to assess their suitability to train to teach.

Health and Physical capacity to train to teach

Providers have a responsibility to ensure that trainees have the health and physical capacity to train to teach and will not put children and young people at risk of harm. The activities that a teacher must be able to perform are set out in the Education (Health Standards) (England) Regulations 2003. Providers are responsible for ensuring that only trainees who have the capacity to teach remain on the programme.

People with disabilities or chronic illnesses may have the capacity to train to teach, just as those without disabilities or medical conditions may be unsuitable to train to teach.

Successful applicants may be asked to complete a fitness questionnaire prior to commencing the programme. ITT providers should not ask all-encompassing health questions but should ensure they only ask targeted and relevant health-related questions which are necessary to ensure that a person is able to train to teach.

All candidates are required to disclose any criminal convictions. Successful candidates will be subject to appropriate pre-selection checks. This will include obtaining and considering Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) criminal records checks and children’s barred list information, criminal record checks for overseas candidates, the Disqualification under the Childcare Act 2006 statutory guidance and that candidates are not subject to a prohibition order issued by the Secretary of State.
