This is a one year programme designed to enable you to meet the Teachers’ Standards as well as gain an academic award, the Postgraduate Certificate in Education. Our partner schools are 11-16 and our trainees are assessed as meeting the Teachers’ Standards in that age range. The training programme combines school experience with Professional Studies and Subject Knowledge Development. The combination of school experience and academic study enables you to link theory with practice, helping you to develop as a reflective practitioner. You will receive a minimum of 60 training days during your training year.
Non-salaried training programme
Although your training is based in a school, you are not employed by a school, and in many ways your training will be similar to training programmes in universities and colleges. You will pay fees but you might be eligible for funding through tuition fee loans, training bursaries or scholarships.
Salaried training programme
If you’d like your training to be based in a school, and want to receive a salary, then School Direct (salaried training) is for you. You’ll be based at a school, have a contract with that school and earn a salary during your training.
This is a school-based ITT programme offered by the Hampshire SCITT Partnership, leading to QTS and PGCE (awarded by the University of Winchester). All other training is provided by LEARN Alliance partnership schools. The quality of provision is assured by the Hampshire SCITT Partnership. Trainees register with the Hampshire SCITT Partnership at the beginning of September. Training will be in LEARN Alliance schools.
