What is a SCITT?
SCITT stands for School Centred Initial Teacher Training.
Training as part of a SCITT gives you the opportunity to learn ‘on the job’ as you work and train in schools. You will benefit from working and learning every day in a school and getting an immediate hands-on insight into what teaching involves.
The Manchester Nexus SCITT courses last one year. Trainees graduate
with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Post Graduate certificate in education (PGCE).
You’ll receive lots of intensive support and training from experienced teachers and
mentors right from the start, and throughout your course. The schools you’re with
won’t ask you to teach classes unsupported until they think you’re ready.
School-led courses have very high rates of employment and trainee satisfaction as no other training route offers as much school based experience. You learn from current practicing teachers, in schools, so you develop skills and knowledge more quickly.
