Interested in training to teach in a local primary school?
The School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) programme is typically a year-long course which enables you to learn ‘on the job’ from the very beginning. The key advantage of this training is that you will be working and learning every day in a local school, and consequently gaining great insight into what teaching involves.
At the end of the year you have Qualified Teacher Status and will be able to apply for roles in any primary maintained or independent school. Our SCITT provider is Surrey South Farnham, an Ofsted-rated Outstanding provider. To find out more about this route into teaching please take a look at their website by clicking here.
Our Lumen ECT Professional Development Commitment
We are delighted to have been appointed as a Regional Ambassador School for the SFET Teaching School Hub; Success For Every Teacher. The government’s new ‘golden thread of teacher development’ is at the heart of the most exciting reforms to teacher education, training and development in a generation, and we are proud to be supporting the roll-out of these changes across our region.
SFET Teaching School Hub will act as a central point for high-quality continual professional development, delivering to the full range of the teaching workforce in all schools; primary, secondary, special, alternative provision and early years. Engagement with up-to-date research and the impact of reading and training upon practice is a vital aspect of learning to teach and underpins the Hub’s delivery offer.
Supporting everything from initial teacher education, the roll-out of the Early Career Framework (ECF) and acting as an Appropriate Body for ECTs across Hampshire and Surrey, to delivering reformed NPQs, including specialisms through to executive headship, SFET Teaching School Hub is delighted to be supporting schools in our local area.
The hub area includes Guildford, Rushmoor, Waverley, Hart, East Hampshire and Basingstoke and Deane and aims to build upon regional partnerships, sharing the excellence and expertise across the locality to deliver a high-quality school-led offer that benefits all teachers, support staff and school leaders.
