School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) is essentially an apprenticeship model of training. Instead of being based in a HEI, trainees are based in a host school and benefit from a range of training experiences, delivered both centrally and within a range of schools. Our trainees meet regularly with their peers to train, network and support each other. By the end of our course, trainees will have acquired and developed pedagogical skills based on practical experiences with a range of local schools alongside our central training programme.
Kirklees & Calderdale SCITT has an experienced core team of central trainers who come from differing backgrounds within Education, bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge to our central programme. This theoretical programme enhances and supports the school based learning.
We are also able to offer trainees the opportunity to achieve a PGCE in Partnership with the University of Huddersfield.
‘I just wanted to say, we have had some students studying various types of teacher training at the school I’m at and I can honestly say, the SCITT is by far the best for preparing trainees for real, everyday teaching. You provide a brilliant balance of all aspects of school life in the most efficient and inspiring way. I knew it was good when I was on your course but it has become really clear to me since helping mentor trainees who have chosen other paths such as PGCE. So here is a massive THANK YOU! You do all the above in a kind, personable and supportive way. Long may it continue!! ART TRAINEE 2014-15
