About the course
Our programme is a primary based programme and runs from September - July during term time. Trainees are in school from Monday to Thursday and then on Friday they have a centre based training session.
Trainees are assessed 3 times throughout the year against very clear criteria.
We offer a PGCE which is accredited through the University of Winchester. There are currently 4 assignments linked to this route spread across the year.
All of our trainees from previous years have secured jobs before leaving the training.
Interviews are held at different partnership schools and are attended by Senior Leaders from these schools.
It is a 4 part process that lasts roughly 1/2 day. There will be a range of activities that interviewees will need to undertake including a formal interview, working with children and a written activity.
How school placements work
Trainees are placed in 2 different schools. They start in their preferred age group and then in the 2nd term move to the alternate key stage. In the 3 rd term they return to their first placement.
Our programme is 5-11, so from year 1- year 6.
We have 12 partnership schools that are infant, junior or primary which are situated in Southampton, Winchester and Diben Purlieu in Hampshire.
The course fees for 2020/2021 are as follows:
GCSE Grade C or Grade 4 and above in English, Maths and Science
A Degree or equivalent qualification
We are looking for trainees who are passionate about children and who want to make a real difference to children's lives.
All trainees will be asked to complete a DBS before starting on the programme.
About the training provider
The SCITT is an integral part of Hamwic Multi Academy Trust and we see our trainees as the future. We look at our trainees and see future leaders within the Trust.
During previous years 100% of trainees said that they would recommend us to others and 100% of our trainees over the past 2 year have had jobs when they completed the programme.
Our partnership is made up of Primary, Infant and Junior schools which serve a wide variety of communities.
The programme is bespoke and is adaptable where needed to ensure that the needs of our trainees are fully met.
Training with disabilities and other needs
We are fully supportive of trainees with disabilities. All of our schools are accessible and academic support is available where needed.
The well being of our trainees is hugely important and trainees have access to free counselling and a range of on-line resources if needed.
There are 1:1 sessions that can be arranged to ensure that our trainees are fully supported throughout the programme.
