The Hampshire SCITT Partnership was judged Outstanding by Ofsted in November 2016: “This is an outstanding provision. At every level and in every way, highly effective leaders have created a teacher training programme which regularly produces extremely proficient teachers who ‘hit the ground running’ when they begin their careers as NQTs.”
Most of the training is delivered by outstanding practitioners in some of the best secondary schools in Hampshire. You will be assigned to one of the schools in our partnership for most of your training (your ‘home’ school) and you will have a second school placement, typically six weeks, which will give your opportunities to extend your practice in a different setting. All the schools have comprehensive intakes and you will be working with young people of all abilities. Our schools are aspirational, wanting the very best outcomes for their pupils and staff.
Staff from the University of Reading will prepare you for the academic assignments, the successful completion of which is required for the award of a PGCE. You will have access to the university library, including their on-line resources, for your academic research.
Each Friday will be dedicated to training in one of our alliance schools. On these days, there will be opportunities for discussion, both formal and informal with outstanding practitioners and with your peers. You will benefit from being part of a highly supportive, professional network.
We are linked with The HISP Research School which is also based at Thornden School in Chandlers Ford, Eastleigh. As one of the new Research Schools in the national network, HISP Research School aims to work collaboratively with schools to help bridge the gap between research evidence and classroom practice. If you train with us, you will benefit from the very best of evidence-based practice.
