Initial Teacher Training

In partnership with 

North East SCITT logo_4x.png

The NELT Hub is proud to have our very own outstanding teacher training provider - North East SCITT (formerly Shotton Hall SCITT). 

With around 100 primary and secondary trainee recruits each year, the SCITT has established itself as a trusted and preferred provider of school-based initial teacher training across the region.  


A strong partnership with the National Institute of Teaching and Birmingham University means trainees get the best of both worlds training in schools from day one with their PGCE awarded by a  UK university.

By the end of the ‘back to school’ morning I had made up my mind – I was going to change career, and North East SCITT was going to be the place I did it.

The North East SCITT team are fantastic in their delivery of core training. The training sessions are planned effectively to help develop pedagogical subject knowledge as well as skills to become a teacher.

The amount of knowledge already imparted has been amazing. It is delivered in an inspiring way so that confidence is developed from an early stage.
