Why train with us


We have a track record in supporting our trainees to succeed through what is a very challenging year. As a small provider, we pride ourselves on the individual and personalised support we give all our trainees in order to ensure they succeed.


In addition to most trainees taking up teaching posts in our schools, the SCITT is part of a successful Teaching School Alliance which offers training from beginner teacher to senior leader. Many of our previous trainees now hold promoted posts in their schools and have gone on to mentor trainees for the SCITT.


In 2021 the SCITT was judged as ‘outstanding’ for a second time by Ofsted. Trainee feedback is significantly better than the sector as a whole and our annual Head Teacher survey praises the quality of NQTs trained by the SCITT.


All our schools are geographically close, so you can be assured of being close to the lead school, colleagues in the SCITT and fellow trainees. The schools work collaboratively and closely together both in design and delivery of the programme, so knowledge of your training is clear to everyone.


We view mentors as central to trainee success and therefore all our mentors are highly valued and receive accredited training, so trainees are supported really well.
