Are you looking to begin a new career? Do you want to inspire others and make a difference?
The North Lincolnshire School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) Partnership offers a bespoke, high-quality, full-time, school-based teacher training programme for those interested in becoming a primary or secondary school teacher.
The programme is delivered in close partnership with schools and academies across North Lincolnshire, providing trainees with access to cutting edge practical delivery, whilst working alongside dedicated school-based mentors and highly experienced professional course tutors.
With substantial time spent in school, trainees have many opportunities to develop their teaching skills, putting into practise the theory learnt in central training. The long placements are ideal in enabling trainees to establish highly effective relationships with the children, their families, and communities.
A recent trainee who completed the programme said: “The North Lincolnshire SCITT training provider genuinely cares about your development and success.
“The mentors, both school and course-based, are highly supportive and encouraging, and tailor the course specifically to your individual needs.
“My training year was a thoroughly enjoyable learning experience, which definitely prepared me for my role as a teacher.
“I was placed in two incredibly supportive schools, who treated me like a valuable member of their team from the very beginning.
“The greatest strength of this programme is definitely being able to learn on the job.”
Upon successful completion of the course, trainees are awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) with a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), providing an excellent chance of securing a first teaching post.
Cllr Julie Reed, cabinet member for children and families, said: “We’re always on the lookout for new teachers in North Lincolnshire to inspire, encourage and ensure the best outcomes for our children and young people.”
‘’The programme offered by the North Lincolnshire SCITT Partnership has been developed over many years and has a proven track record and excellent reputation with local schools as a high performing training provider.
“It is a popular choice as it follows an apprenticeship model of training, whereby trainees develop their techniques and skills alongside mentors in the classroom and gain ‘real life’ teacher experiences during school placements.
“We have an excellent success rate of trainees completing the course and going on to secure a teaching job afterwards.
“It doesn’t matter if you are just finishing university or looking for a career change. If anyone has been considering going into teaching, get in touch and find out if this is the career for you.”
Financial support is available to those eligible for help with tuition fees.
