About the course

The Secondary SCITT Tuition PGCE programme is an exciting and very successful school based teacher training programme.

It was described by Ofsted (June 2013) as providing ‘strong personalised support that has a clear positive impact on trainees’ progress.

You will find your training year challenging at times but there is a very experienced and supportive Secondary SCITT Tuition team who are able to guide you every step of the way.

We are very proud of the support that we are able to offer to our trainees in partnership with our placement schools.

The programme is structured so that your teaching commitments gradually increase through the year. As your confidence increases, so does your teaching timetable. You are not employed by the school which gives you the flexibility to undertake your training at a personalised pace to suit your needs. You do not have sole responsibility for any classes so you are always working alongside an experienced teacher.

Interview process

You will be invited to an interview in the lead school. This interview could include: an activity with pupils e.g teaching part of a lesson, or taking a group activity; a pupil panel interview; a written task and a formal interview with a small panel of representatives from the school and wider School Direct partnership. If successful, you will be given a conditional offer of a place to train.

How school placements work

Trainees will complete training in two different schools during the course of the year.

Typically trainees spend the autumn term in their host school and then go to a second placement school during the first part of the Spring term and then return to their host school for the remainder of the year.
