We are proud of the recognition by OFSTED 2023 that “Leaders have designed an ambitious curriculum, rooted in the provider’s values of ‘excellence, collaboration and inclusion’. Strong links with nearby primary and secondary schools help leaders understand the local context and respond to changing recruitment needs. Leaders often review the training programme to make sure that it remains suitable.

The SCITT has a long-established reputation among local schools for preparing trainees very well to join the teaching profession.

Leaders pay close attention to how the programme is organised. They ensure that each aspect is underpinned by the most up-to-date pedagogical research and thinking. The programme easily meets the requirements of the Department for Education’s core content framework.”
