We believe that all learners, regardless of background, should be enabled by those who teach them to make progress academically and find happiness in their lives. This philosophy applies to all learners of all ages, including our trainee teachers. We believe that in the enabling of progress for others, we make progress ourselves. The Curriculum of our training programme is tailor-made to meet the learning needs of trainee teachers working with us and is underpinned by the ITT Core Content Framework.
From the first day on placement, trainees will be in the classroom as part of an established teaching team in a school. Training is carefully designed to support trainees to achieve Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Our training is delivered by both experts in placement schools and by SCITT staff and guest trainers, themselves expert school practitioners. On successful completion of the programme, trainees will be recommended for Qualified Teacher Status by GORSE SCITT.
Ensuring our trainees develop a wealth of subject knowledge and pedagogy is a key goal of GORSE SCITT. As well as following our core GORSE SCITT Curriculum, we employ expert teachers from our trust and partner schools who will deliver weekly subject knowledge and pedagogy sessions during the training year.
All our trainees carry a copy of our curriculum with them. It is the heart of what we do.
