About the training provider

CTSN SCITT is a school centred accredited provider of ITE that offers teacher training across the Eastern Region, based around two training centres in Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds:

  • all applicants will be able to choose whether they attend the core training in Cambridge or Bury St Edmunds.

We work with a wide variety of partnership schools across Cambridgeshire, West Suffolk, North Essex, North Herts:

  • there is a very good chance of us being able to place you in a local school, convenient for your training.

Such a strong network of schools also means that

  • the vast majority of our trainees get jobs working in local schools.

As a school centred provider all our tutors are expert teachers, which means:

  • our training is not only evidence-based, but also informed by expert practice.

We provide a wide range of routes:

  • both primary (5-11) and secondary;
  • supported by both loan/bursary or salary;
  • full time or part time (over two years).

Our salaried routes will lead to the award of QTS; the other routes, whether supported by loan or bursary (which is often the most financially beneficial for trainees, particularly in shortage secondary subjects) will lead to QTS plus PGCE (*subject to validation).

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 have an offer, but have not yet disclosed a disability or other need, you can disclose at any time.
