Our school is part of a successful local partnership providing School Centred Initial Teacher Training. To find out more arrange an informal chat with Jon Turner or follow the link below.
The Astra Alliance has been awarded status as a School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) provider, working with the Institute of Education (UCL) for the PGCE qualification to provide high quality training placements. During the training year, all trainees will have the opportunity to spend time in at least one other of our partnership schools to ensure a contrasting and comprehensive experience. The Alliance has considerable experience of training teachers and recognises and values the enthusiastic contribution that they make to our school communities. Staff at the training schools will share their knowledge and good practice to ensure that trainees are well supported to develop into good and outstanding teachers.
The programme is structured to allow trainees to develop the skills required to teach the subject that they are training in and to develop specific expertise for making a distinctive contribution to practice in their setting. Expressions of interest can be registered with firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about SCITT/School Direct teaching routes can be found at:
