Why North East SCITT?
Deciding what route to choose for your teacher training can be difficult, so we have put together a list of reasons why North East SCITT (formerly Shotton Hall SCITT) should be your first choice.
About our programme
At North East SCITT you will be at the heart of school life, learning from outstanding practitioners, who will help you to develop your career as a teacher and encourage you to be the best that you can be. By choosing to train with us, you will be immersed in school life from the outset, interacting with students and learning first-hand from outstanding teachers within the North East Learning Trust Teaching School Hub across North East England.
You will practise in a broad range of schools, gaining experience and expertise in different areas including SEND, behaviour management, English as an additional language (EAL) and phonics, and maths mastery (for primary only). You will be allocated a subject mentor from a team of specialists with vast experience. They will introduce you to school life and help you to learn how to teach your subject as you work your way through the Teacher Standards with lesson planning, weekly meetings and assessments within your school. Your training will lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and masters level accreditation, equivalent to a postgraduate certificate of education (PGCE), from Birmingham University (distance learning).
