Is the programme for me?

Our programme is for future teachers looking for full-time, 'hands-on' training in at least two local TSAT schools. You'll be in school from September and benefit from the support of a trained mentor throughout your training.

Our research led course will give you plenty of practical experience. Our curriculum focusses on supporting you to put learning into practice and places you in school from early September until the end of June, with four classroom based days per week. The programme balances excellent subject specific expertise with a deep understanding of effective teaching methods and includes an emphasis on teacher well-being. 

Our programme also includes a six-week placement in a second educational setting later in the year to ensure that you qualify with a broad teaching experience. 

You will undertake six modules across the year - one per half-term. In each module you will have self-directed study sessions, live seminars and time to collaborate with other trainees within our SCITT hub. The modules cover all areas of the Core Content Framework providing an integrated understanding of common teaching practice and subject/phase methodology. Each module will provide you with an opportunity to practice and apply your learning in the classroom.

At the end of the programme you will achieve a PGCE (Post-graduate certificate in education (from Sheffield Hallam University - our partner University)) and Teach First will accredit your QTS (qualified teacher status).
