What are the similarities between studying on a SCITT route and at university?
- The qualification – QTS – is recommended wherever you train, we also offer a PGCE as part of our programmes so all SCITT trainees receive the same qualification as those at university.
- Structurally the courses are similar as we have core training every week like a university. We also do not expect you to teach lessons in your first week, we build up your contact time as you become more confident across the year.
- All trainees have a school-based mentor who meets with them every week. SCITT staff also pay you regular visits giving you lots of support.
- Fees and funding for non-salaried trainees are identical for universities and SCITTs.
