Teaching could be the future you are looking for

Along with nursing, teaching is one of the most sought-after careers for young people looking for something to inspire them. Teaching is not a job – it is a vocation and for you to become a teacher, you need to have a drive and a passion for shaping young minds, imparting wisdom and spending your time learning too.

Teaching can be a challenging profession, there’s no secret about that, but teaching is what you make it and there are numerous benefits to choosing to become a teacher. There are some that feel teaching is a calling, and others are drawn to a role that enables them to make a difference to the education system as a whole. The biggest consideration is the right teacher training provider to help you hone your teaching skills.


At GORSE SCITT, we offer outstanding teacher training to all of our candidates. Our aim is to give you an experience that allows you to work within a school to understand first-hand the day to day life of a teacher. We are currently the only Ofsted Outstanding teacher training provider in Yorkshire and The Humber. GORSE SCITT has cultivated a programme that ensures that you will see and understand every aspect of a child’s life from age 3 to 19. This gives you the well-rounded experience that you need to decide whether teaching is for you, and which age group you feel you have more of an affinity for teaching.

How We Do It

With our programme, you spend 80% of your time learning directly with us in the classroom. You’ll be observing, team-teaching and solo-teaching high-quality lessons and learning how to create your own lesson plans. We are school-centred in our approach, but we take your teacher training seriously, with a large focus on your academic development.

What You Get

With GORSE SCITT, you will gain more than just qualifications. You’ll gain an appreciation for teaching that is unique to us as a provider. You will be exposed to teaching all ages and abilities, from children with SEND (special educational needs and disabilities), children with EAL (English as an additional language) and children attending an Alternative Provision setting.  You will also get a chance to explore the cultural heritage in the area in which you train.

In terms of qualifications, you will gain:

  • QTS – Qualified Teacher Status. This is based around your planning, teaching and assessment of children.
  • PGCE – Postgraduate Certificate of Education. This programme is for those who have another degree outside of teaching and a PGCE is known as the “gold standard” of teacher training. You will learn alongside our QTS programme and be able to complete two Masters Level assignments. This will secure you the PGCE that you need to teach freely.
