AMP SCITT has been given government approval to plan its own teacher training courses for primary and secondary teaching and this is called School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT). AMP SCITT provides practical, hands-on teacher training delivered by experienced, practising teachers, based in schools in its partnership. The SCITT course is a year long from September to July and results in trainees being awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) by AMP SCITT and a PGCE qualification.
What is a SCITT?
What does a teaching course involve?
To become a qualified teacher, you need to successfully complete teacher training. By doing so, you’ll achieve ‘qualified teacher status’ – or QTS.
All teacher training courses include:
• a minimum of 24 weeks in at least two schools to give you practical classroom experience. In the AMP SCITT programme you will have 30 weeks in schools.
• academic study to give you the knowledge and understanding to teach successfully
• an assessment of your teaching skills (through being observed teaching classes).
