SCITT: Teacher Training Opportunities
CHS is a member of the NMAPS, National Mathematics and Physics SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) and is one of eight hubs which work with partner schools in their areas to deliver high quality classroom-based maths teacher training. Trainees will join CHS or a partner school and commence the training programme in their main placement school from September.
SCITT programmes are aimed at both new graduates and career changers and enable a new generation of teachers to benefit from highly practical, school-based training.
The SCITT is the only school-centred provider delivering dedicated maths and physics teacher training. It has been developed in partnership with experts from the Institute of Physics and the Mathematical Association.
Trainees will spend most of their time at CHS, building their confidence and experience, with weekly academic theory sessions to support their development. They will also work for six weeks in a contrasting second school to broaden their experience. Kingsway and St Matthew’s in Moston have agreed to provide complementary placements for our trainees and active links with these schools’ departments can now grow and flourish on many levels in Mathematics.
At the end of the one year SCITT programme, trainees will receive Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), including credits towards a Masters qualification.
