A recent survery shows that NQTs feel better prepared for teaching through SCITT training routes!

According to the research, NQTs on school-centred initial teacher training (SCITT) routes were generally more satisfied than those on university-led courses.

SCITT-trained NQTs generally felt their training prepared them better for teaching than those on other routes. They reported better ratings than university routes on 19 of the 21 aspects of teaching the survey asked about.

The SCITT-led postgraduate route garnered the highest satisfaction levels of all, with 89 per cent of NQTs on this route rating the quality of their training as at least seven out of 10.

We offer both Primary and Secondary training, a range of secondary subjects and also School Direct Salaried places

YOUR FUTURE THEIR FUTURE

Education Secretary Nicky Morgan said;

Teachers play a crucial role in delivering the government’s plan for education and preparing our young people for life in modern Britain.

Teaching has never been more attractive to high achievers, as it is a career that offers great opportunity for progression.

But we want to encourage even more talented people into the profession. Our new teacher recruitment campaign, Your future their future, will play an important role in attracting new people to teaching and encouraging more top graduates to consider training to teach priority subjects like maths and physics. We want the best graduates in the teaching profession, so that young people are inspired by the subjects they love.
