The Primary programme is managed by Bourne Westfield Primary Academy and we will have lots of vacancies for a 2020 start.
The programme takes place over an academic year, starting with induction in August and ending with our qualification celebration in the summer. Every Friday, your core training takes place in and around the SCITT’s associate schools and then you spend the remaining four days in your host training school, working with your team and your classes. You gradually assume responsibility for your teaching over the course of the year but the pace of this is tailored for trainees from all backgrounds. Our primary school partners can be found on the ‘Partners’ menu and these (and more) are the schools which may be available to host your training.
We offer a
number of different courses, all of which lead to Qualified Teacher Status.
The Assessment Only Route (AOR) - Assessment cost: £2500
Award for QTS in age range 3 - 11 (Primary)This is not a training programme but a route to assessment for applicants currently working as teachers in schools but who do not have QTS. Candidates must be currently working in a school and have a minimum of two years’ full time teaching experience across at least two schools. Applicants must have the support of the headteacher to evidence their suitability to teach as well as their ability to evidence all the standards for QTS without the need for any further training. All other national teaching criteria (GCSEs, degree, skills tests etc) must be fulfilled.
You will have access to student loans to cover your training for all except the AOR.
