Any school can be a Teacher Training School


Are you interested in selecting, recruiting and training excellent student teachers in your school? If so, the Bradford Birth to 19 SCITT is interested in hearing from you.

Training through our SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) is an approach to initial teacher training in which schools take the lead in recruiting and training new entrants to the profession.

The Bradford Birth to 19 SCITT was formed in 2014, allowing us to recommend successful trainees for Qualified Teacher Status. Our training programme has been written by schools, and is delivered in schools by inspirational practitioners at Schools such as:

  • Chellow Heights Special School
  • Dixons City Academy
  • Dixons Allerton Academy
  • Eldwick Primary School
  • Lapage Primary School
  • Parkwood Primary School
  • Saltaire Primary School
  • St Edmund’s Nursery School and Children’s Centre
  • St John’s Primary School
  • Thornbury Primary School
  • Bingley Grammar School
  • Belle Vue Girls School
  • Beckfoot School
  • Carlton Bolling Community School

We are interested in working with schools who are committed to Initial Teacher Training. This year our schools will be working together to create our own training programme, designed and delivered by schools.
