Teacher Training

Train to teach: our school-led training programme

We are proud to work with our associate partners to provide a high quality teacher training experience for our student teachers. Our SCITT (School Centered Initial Teacher Training) programme is tailored to the individual trainee’s needs and aspirations whilst at the same time ensuring our children have the best classroom support possible.

Whether you are a new graduate, about to graduate or are considering a change of career, our SCITT will give you the foundation for an amazing career in the classroom. We offer excellent bespoke and hands-on initial teacher training opportunities for primary teachers and leaders of the future.

School Direct is a school-based teacher training programme where trainee teachers are immersed in the classroom from the very first day of training. Working collaboratively with primary schools, special schools, the Lincolnshire Teaching School Alliance (Click here to find out more about the LTSA) and the University of Lincoln, we provide high-quality, diverse and first class school-based teacher training in over 50 schools within and around Lincolnshire.

Our course offers a PGCE qualification with QTS. Training programmes are school based, with a one day training session per week at either Lincoln University, LTSA or within one of our partner Primary schools.
