About Initial Teacher Training

Anyone wishing to teach must complete initial teacher training - ITT. There are various ways you can complete and fund your ITT either as part of your degree, after a degree, at a college or university or through selected teaching schools.

Partnership with schools across North East England

In partnership with over 90 local education providers, we offer one of the most comprehensive, innovative and relevant school-based ITT courses available. The National Institute of Teaching (NIoT) is now accrediting our ITT provision. Teacher training was formerly North East SCITT. We are now a lead partner with NIoT and receive our QTS accreditation through the NIoT.


Any alumni of North East SCITT can contact us for any enquiries/references.

ITT with North East SCITT

Our programme will give you the opportunity to learn to teach 'on-the-job'. Unlike traditional teacher training courses, our school-based course will mean that from the outset you are in the classroom, interacting with pupils and teachers and learning first hand the knowledge and skills you'll need to become an outstanding teacher.

Speaking of 'outstanding'...

By choosing to train with North East SCITT you'll not only be amongst enthusiastic and talented teachers, you'll be amongst outstanding teachers. The most recent Ofsted inspection at our lead school The Academy at Shotton Hall (July 2013) was outstanding in all areas. 


Subject knowledge enhancement

If you are thinking of applying for an ITT place with us but are worried about your subject knowledge, then all is not lost. We have a wide variety of online 'subject knowledge enhancement' (SKE) courses that we can make available to you to further strengthen your subject knowledge, following success at interview.
