Primary SCITT overview
SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) is a 38 week school based full-time post-graduate teacher training programme. A group of schools take the lead in designing the training programme.
The Titan Primary SCITT offers training across Key Stages 1 and 2 (5-11 year olds). Successful applicants to our programme will work in at least two of the participating schools gaining experience both in the classroom and in the general day-to-day life of a school. Trainees will teach in two consecutive age-ranges.
The Primary teacher training offers Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). The PGCE qualification is validated by Birmingham City University.
The course elements are assessed by:
- Reflective Evaluative Evidence Portfolio – The REEP provides an opportunity for the trainees to submit evidence that demonstrates their competence against the National College of Teaching and Leadership’s Teachers’ Standards (2012)
- Development Log – Trainees keep a reflective log of their training and learning experiences throughout the course. At three points in the training year trainees self-assess against Level Descriptors linked to the Teachers’ Standards.
- Subject Knowledge folder –Trainees track their subject knowledge acquisition and expertise across the year in their audits and compile a folder demonstrating their subject knowledge linked to the National Curriculum.
- Written assignments and a research task presentation. Trainees will have the option to study at level 7 in order to gain Masters level credits.
