What is School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT)?
A SCITT PGCE is a school-led route, offering Secondary PGCE courses through a partnership of local schools and Leeds Trinity University
SCITT courses are ideal for any graduate who wishes to complete their teacher training within a school environment. It allows you as a new teacher to experience first-hand what pupils find difficult in your subject. You will work directly with your lead subject tutor to meet these challenges.
Leeds SCITT has been training outstanding secondary teachers in West Yorkshire since 2004. Your PGCE programme is designed in partnership with Leeds Trinity University and the schools within the Leeds SCITT partnership. You’ll be based in a school from day one and your training will be very hands-on.
|Art and Design||Drama||Mathematics||Religious Education|
|Computer Science with ICT||English||Music||Science with Biology|
|Dance||Geography||Modern Foreign Languages||Science with Chemistry|
|Design and Technology||History||Physical Education||Science with Physics|
The course structure gives you the chance to develop your confidence and teaching knowledge through three stages. Your training will be led by a mix of university tutors and active teaching professionals based at schools, who’ll give you high levels of personal support in and out of the classroom.
While you’ll spend very little time at Leeds Trinity University, you’ll still be able to access all the specialist support that you would expect from a University.
In Leeds SCITT partner schools you will:
- be immersed in the school environment from week one.
- have the opportunity to reach your full potential.
- work professionally alongside colleagues within a department.
- receive comprehensive expert mentoring with experienced teachers’ support.
- have full access to ICT facilities and specialist teaching equipment.
