School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT)
A SCITT is a networks of schools that have been approved to run teacher training courses. SCITTs provide practical, hands-on teacher training, delivered by experienced, practising teachers based in their own school or a school in their network.
SCITT courses always lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and employment prospects are fantastic because trainees work in schools where there are vacancies. Many trainees prefer the SCITT route because they want to immediately immerse themselves in the work environment.
