  1. Schools Direct

If you want your training to be based in a school of your choice, where you can be fully immersed in the life of a teacher from day one, a school-led training course is for you. You’re selected by the school and are based there during your training. You will also spend time in at least one other school to gain the broad experience required to become a teacher. All school-led courses cover the practical and theoretical elements of teaching alongside University partners. Most school-led courses lead to a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) and/or master’s-level credits, in addition to qualified teacher status (QTS). The TTA works in partnership with both Christ College, Canterbury and Brighton University.

  1. SCITT

We constantly look to develop outstanding school-led primary initial teacher training programmes, integrated with the Teaching School expertise that engages schools in the Partnership in leading the training of high calibre recruits to become outstanding members of the teaching profession in Surrey and its bordering counties. We have linked with South Farnham who are Surrey’s largest school-led primary provider of initial teacher training with over 100 schools in Surrey and beyond. Their trainees are highly sought after and they look to deliver 100% employment every year. A PGCE qualification is available to those who wish to pursue this M-level qualification (60 masters credits) with Roehampton University. To find out more about the programmes on offer, entry requirements and FAQs please have a look at their new interactive brochure and promotional video or visit www.ssfscitt.org.uk.
