School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) is essentially an apprenticeship model of training. Instead of being based in a HEI, trainees are based in a host school and benefit from a range of training experiences, delivered both centrally and within a range of schools. Our trainees meet regularly with their peers to train, network and support each other. By the end of our course, trainees will have acquired and developed pedagogical skills based on practical experiences with a range of local schools alongside our central training programme.
Kirklees & Calderdale SCITT has an experienced core team of central trainers who come from differing backgrounds within Education, bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge to our central programme. This theoretical programme enhances and supports the school based learning.
