About the course

As a school based ITT provider, CTSN SCITT works very closely with its partnership schools, and the vast majority of our trainees get jobs working in these local schools. We are looking for creative, proactive, positive applicants who share our commitment that students in our local schools should have the best possible teachers, and a desire and determination to make this commitment a reality.

Interview process

At interview you will usually be asked to teach a small group of students, most probably in Key Stage 3. In addition there will be a short written task and an interview with a SCITT Senior Tutor, together with a senior teacher from one of our partnership schools. The employing school (ie the one that will pay your salary) would also need to interview you; this could be arranged on the same interview day or, if necessary, on an alternative date.

How school placements work

We have excellent relationships with a wide range of good and outstanding schools, across the Eastern region, which gives us considerable flexibility in placing trainees in local schools, within reach from the their home address. Part time salaried trainees spend most of their time at their employing school, except for the Summer term in the first year, when you will be placed at a contrasting school.

Salary

Salaried teacher trainees are employed by a school on the Unqualified Teacher scale, usually UQ1.

Financial support

Financial support isn’t available for this course because it comes with a salary.

If you choose a course without a salary, you may be eligible for financial support while you study, including bursaries, scholarships and loans.

Requirements

Qualifications

You need a minimum of a 2.2 Honours Degree (or overseas equivalent confirmed by NARIC UK). Usually, at least 50% of your degree should be directly relevant to the subject you wish to teach. However, applicants who have a degree in a non-related subject but have significant work experience relevant to the subject they wish to teach may also be considered. Also, you would need to have a GCSE Mathematics and English (Grade C/4 or above) or equivalent .

About the training provider

At Anglian Gateway we work closely with a growing partnership of schools and our ITT provider to develop successful, highly motivated teachers for the future.

Our joint mission with our ITT provider is to recruit and retain high quality candidates into teaching to meet the needs of our locality as well as nationally. We provide personalised programmes which are delivered by excellent classroom practitioners and specialist leaders of education.

We are offering places on the salaried and non-salaried School Direct training programmes for both primary and secondary.

If you want your initial teacher training to put theory into practice, to gain confidence with increasing classroom experience and to benefit from the skills of experienced successful practitioners then this one year school centred training programme is worthy of consideration.

Training with disabilities and other needs

Teachers with disabilities make an important contribution to schools both in the classroom and in shaping the wider culture and ethos of the schools they work in. Schools value diversity and the unique contribution that all their staff and trainees bring. If you have a disability, you shouldn’t be dissuaded from applying. If you are invited to attend an interview, and have any special requirements, please let us know beforehand so that we may make reasonable adjustments for you. We want all interview candidates to have an equitable and enjoyable experience, regardless of any disability. Full details are on the Department for Education website.

All trainees are required to complete a medical check when they receive the offer of a training place. This will identify if there are adjustments required. As a training provider, CTSN will make such adjustments in our training. We encourage all trainees to disclose all relevant information with their placement schools as this will enable them to make suitable provision. Schools have experience of making provisions for their own students and are therefore well placed to offer similar adjustments for trainee teachers. If you receive an offer, but have not yet disclosed a disability or other need, you can disclose at any time.
