Teacher Training

Schools Direct 

Schools Direct is a one year qualified teaching programme that gives you an opportunity to ‘learn on the job’ in a primary or secondary school. From day one you will be part of the teaching team, learning from experienced and practicing colleagues, putting your new skills into practice, as well as earning a salary. This is appropriate for those who are currently working in a school without qualified teaching status (QTS), teaching assistants (TA) who wish to train as a teacher or anyone with 2 years’ work experience (in any field) looking for a career change.

SCITT is a one-year primary school teaching programme that leads to qualified teacher status (QTS) and post-graduate certification of education (PGCE). During the year, you learn how to teach across the primary curriculum as well as spending 120 days training in high-performing schools.   

SCITT is an opportunity to have university style training with significant hands-on experience. Numbers are restricted which allows the programme to offer excellent individual support, 1-1 mentoring that in turn allows the trainers to fully invest in the development of each student.  This results in being well equipped to enter any classroom by the end of the course. 

The course covers all the subjects that you are required to teach across the primary curriculum. These include, English, Maths, Science and foundation subjects. There are two options to choose from: Primary Teacher that gives a broad understanding of primary teaching or Primary Teacher Specialising in Jewish Studies in which you become an effective practitioner in both secular and Jewish Studies.
