How To Apply
WE ARE NOW RECRUITING FOR OUR 2024-25 COHORT OF PRIMARY AND SECONDARY TRAINEES.
DfE APPLICATION PORTAL
Applications for all of our Initial Teacher Training programmes are through the government application portal. In order to apply, prospective trainees need to complete the application form online through the DfE site.
You can search either Sutton SCITT or our provider code which is 1ZW for core SCITT and 17J for School Direct Salaried.
Please make sure you complete the application form in full ensuring you include all your qualifications and work history. When writing your personal statement include why you want to teach, your beliefs about education and any experience you have of working with young people.
Once you have completed your application, notify your referees as the SCITT will not receive your application form until the references are completed.
The Assessment Day will be held at either Glenthorne High School (Secondary) or Aragon Primary School (Primary). Candidates will be given plenty of notice for the assessment and guidance about how to prepare.
There will be an initial interview where candidates will be expected to answer questions related to teaching and education with a focus on the age phase and/or subject applied for. Candidates will also be asked to work with a group of pupils and complete a short subject assessment. You will have an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the interview.
