Secondary SCITT overview

SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) is a 36 week full-time post-graduate teacher training programme.   A group of schools take the lead in designing the training programme.

The Titan Secondary SCITT offers training across Key Stages 3 and 4 (11-16 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.
