SCITT

Have you ever considered becoming a teacher? Whether you are a recent graduate or you have been working in industry for a number of years, teaching can be a rewarding career with great opportunities for progression.  Our schools need high quality teachers in order to develop and fulfil the potential of all students.  In order to achieve this, we are keen to nurture and support the teachers of the future.

George Abbot SCITT is a highly respected and well-established provider delivering school-based Initial Teacher Training (ITT) through Teach Surrey.  Teach Surrey represents an alliance of Teaching Schools and their associated partner schools across Surrey and beyond.

George Abbot SCITT has always led the way in teacher training and we work very closely with the DfE. In 2012, we were the first ITT provider in the UK to pilot the School Direct ITT programme. In 2013, alongside an educational charity, we created an entirely new route into teaching for candidates with PhDs, called Researchers in Schools.

We offer Primary and Secondary teacher training on a full-time basis, all with a core focus on training all teachers to teach all children, and this includes offering trainees the option to specialise in Special Educational Needs (SEN).

With 17 years’ experience leading ITT, we offer practical training in a variety of different schools, all with experienced practitioners to mentor you through the course.  We have unrivalled experience in Surrey having trained over 500 teachers, and our provision across the partnership is rated as “Outstanding” by Ofsted, as well as by our past trainees.

We are small enough to really get to know our trainees and to be able to tailor our training to meet the needs of everyone on our programme.  We are also proud to say that our trainees have a 100% employment record at the end of their training year.
