Bluecoat SCITT Alliance Nottingham is working in partnership with Sheffield Hallam University to provide high quality initial teacher training. All trainees who successfully complete the School Direct programme with us will be recommended for Qualified Teacher Status and gain a PGCE with 60 credits at Masters Level. The University has a long history of Initial Teacher Education and we have worked together closely to develop a programme based on experience, excellent Quality Assurance and a commitment to a high level of support for trainees.
Bluecoat Academy is our Lead School (part of Archway Learning Trust) where Bluecoat SCITT is based. It is a large, successful secondary school, ranging from age 11-18 years, with our own Primary provision being developed from January 2015.
Bluecoat Academy is a Leading Edge School and has expertise in SEN, EAL and CPD, with the NQT provision in 2014 being deemed exemplary. It has a bespoke Autistic Centre highly regarded across the City.
Preparation for lifelong learning and skills, lie at the heart of our educational vision.
