School-Centred Initial Teacher Training
The SCITT enables graduates to undertake their training within a school environment, leading to Qualified Teacher Status. Some SCITT programmes also award a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) qualification.
The programmes cover primary, middle and secondary age ranges and candidates work in a consortium of schools within a designated region.
The entrance requirements and funding availability is the same as for PGCE courses and applications are also made through the GTTR.
