In 2016, Ofsted rated North East SCITT (formerly Shotton Hall SCITT) to be 'outstanding' for both our primary and secondary teacher training provision, the highest accolade achievable.

Oustanding teacher training in partnership with schools across the North East


Our outstanding judgement is the highest accolade achievable for a school-based teacher training provider and makes us one of only a handful of providers in the North East judged to be outstanding.

Inspectors praised the excellent training on offer, commenting that newly qualified teachers from our courses “are fully committed to their vocation of teaching…proud of their training, proud of their pupils’ achievement, and proud of the profession itself: they are professionals from day one.”


Inspectors also praised the strong subject knowledge of trainees and newly qualified teachers and stated that their outcomes are “well above average”.

I feel really proud to say I completed my initial teacher training with North East SCITT. It 100% lives up to it's reputation.
