The CfBT Education Trust SCITT: About us

If you would like your initial teacher training (ITT) to include more time training in the classroom, putting theory into practice and gaining confidence through increased contact with the school environment, then school-based training may be a good option for you.

The CfBT Education Trust SCITT accredited provider works in partnership with schools to offer School Direct and SCITT initial teacher training.  QTS is awarded to those who have demonstrated that they have met the Teachers’ Standards by the end of their training programme. There is a PGCE option awarded by the Univsersity of Hull.

We are a provider with many years’ experience in teacher training and employment rates at the end of the training are very high.  The CfBT Education Trust SCITT is an integral part of CfBT Education Trust with 40 years' experience of delivering education services worldwide CfBT Education Trust exists solely to provide education for public benefit.

In 2011, the East Lincolnshire Graduate Teacher Programme was joined by another employment based route, specialising in languages training - the CILT GTP, which became known as The Languages Graduate Teacher Programme. This is a specialist training programme that places trainees in partner schools throughout the whole of England and both migrated to become the CfBT Education Trust SCITT in early 2013. 

Today, CfBT Education Trust SCITT operates at two levels :

1) The National Languages ITT (secondary modern languages - national)

2) Lincolnshire/East Midlands ITT (primary and a selection of secondary subjects - regional) - part of the Lincolnshire ITT Alliance (LITTA)

The CfBT Education Trust SCITT also provides an Assessment Only Route. The AO route allows you to demonstrate that you already meet all of the standards for QTS, without the need for any further training. You will need to present detailed evidence, and your teaching will be assessed in a school by us. You must also take the professional skills tests in literacy and numeracy before you can be accepted onto the route. Click on the link below.

The Lincolnshire Initial Teacher Training Alliance (LITTA) is a direct response to national changes in ITT. It provides an innovative and creative framework for developing school-led ITT provision in the East Midlands region. It aims to meet the needs of the diverse range of schools and trainees in Lincolnshire and neighbouring counties, and aspires to support improvements in teaching and learning, particularly for those facing difficulties in recruitment. It covers a wide geographical area, including the coastal strip with large pockets of social and economic disadvantage.

 

The Alliance consists of Lead, Associate Schools, CfBT Education Trust SCITT (ITT Provider) and Hull University (PGCE Accreditation).

 

The Lincolnshire Initial Teacher Training Alliance (LITTA) is offering 3 different routes into Teaching: School Direct Training Programme (Fee Paying), School Direct Training Programme (Salaried) and School-Centred ITT (SCITT) Fee Paying Core places.

(1)  School Direct

NEWSFLASH: The next application cycle starts on Thursday 21 November. Please visit the UCAS ITT website to apply. The main aim of School Direct is to allow schools to recruit and select the trainees they want with the expectation that they will then go on to work within the school or group of schools in which they were trained, although there is no absolute guarantee of employment.

School Direct offers two types of training places; (1.1) the School Direct Training Programme and (1.2) the School Direct (salaried).

 

(1.1)      School Direct Training Programme (Fee Paying)

Open to graduates and funded by tuition fees paid by the trainee. Bursaries are available for eligible trainees. Home and EU students may be eligible for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of tuition fees charged. This is available through Student Finance England. More information on the tuition fee loan can be found on Directgov (bursaries and tuition fee loan information).

Fees September 2014.

Recommendation for QTS - £8200

Recommendation for QTS and PGCE (postgraduate) - £9000

(1.2)      School Direct Training Programme (Salaried)

The School Direct Training Programme (salaried) will be open to graduates normally with three or more years’ career experience. Trainees will be employed as an unqualified teacher by a school and the Teaching Agency provides funding, which the school can use to subsidise the trainee’s salary and /or training.

Schools will know how many places they can offer in mid-October 2012, and applications will open shortly after. Further details on how to apply will be made available in due course.

School Direct places are offered by a school or group of schools in partnership with an accredited teacher training institution/provider such as CfBT. You can expect to gain placements and training in schools with experience of ITT, including some of the new teaching schools judged as outstanding by Ofsted and which excel at training and developing their staff.

All School Direct places will lead to qualified teacher status (QTS) and an optional postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) validated by a higher education institution (HEI). Trainees will be required to pay for the additional PGCE option - £800. See the links at the bottom of the page for more information on how to apply.

More information on the tuition fee loan can be found on Directgov (bursaries and tuition fee loan information). As with School Direct, there may be an option to be awarded a PGCE.
