General information about the Kirklees & Calderdale SCITT
The Kirklees Partnership for ETT received confirmation of accreditation from the Teaching Agency to become a SCITT provider. Our base will remain at Heckmondwike Grammar School.
School-Centered Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) is essentially an apprenticeship model of training. Instead of being based in a HEI, you are based in a host school and benefit from a range of training experiences, delivered both centrally and within a range of schools. Our trainees meet regularly with their peers to train, network and support each other.
Kirklees & Calderdale SCITT has a core team of central trainers, which has developed its expertise and experience through the GTP.
We are currently exploring the possibility of offering trainees the opportunity to achieve a PGCE qualification in Partnership with the University of Huddersfield.
By the end of your course, you will have acquired and developed pedagogical skills based on practical experiences with a range of local schools.
For the academic year 2013/14 we have 24 Primary places and 12 Secondary places.
Within Primary we offer Early Years (Foundation Stage & Key Stage 1) and General Primary (Key Stage 1 & 2). In Secondary our range of subjects are Art & Design, Biology, Chemistry, English, Mathematics, MfL, Physical Education and Physics.
We anticipate strong competition for places and recommend that prospective candidates for both phases submit their applications ASAP.
