What qualification will I leave with?
The Victoria Academies Teacher Training SCITT course leads to a Post Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). The course carries 60 Credits towards a Masters Degree.
What is a ‘general primary’ course?
This means you will be trained to teach children aged 5 – 11 years in key stages 1 and 2.
What does SCITT stand for?
School Centred Initial Teacher Training.
Is there any accommodation attached to the course?
Unfortunately not. We would recommend contacting local estate agents and letting agents if you are moving to the area.
I have children, are there any childcare facilities?
Will I be required to travel during the course?
Yes, one of the advantages of training with Victoria Academies Teacher Training is that trainees carry out their training within and across the schools that comprise Victoria Academies Trust. In doing so, trainees gain a variety of experiences within a range of school settings. Therefore there is the requirement to travel to these locations.
