The HART of Yorkshire SCITT- initial teacher training

In the current climate with difficulties in recruiting to the teaching profession, particularly in rural areas, YCAT provides the lead for a school based initial teacher training programme. (School Centred Initial Teacher Training)

Led by Bilton Grange School and supported by the HART Alliance, the HART of Yorkshire SCITT provides high quality teacher training using outstanding practitioners.

HART of Yorkshire SCITT is at the forefront of developments in teaching and learning at Primary and Early Years.  Trainees completing their training are fully prepared for their careers in schools with a full understanding of best practice across the education system.  The training is validated by Northumbria University.

The SCITT offers:

  • A programme set up by a group of schools that have a moral purpose to provide children with the best teachers.
  • A programme which is school led: responsive to the changing educational landscape; designed, facilitated and led by existing teachers and leaders.
  • A programme designed to ensure that classroom practice is closely aligned to a structured development of pedagogical theory and understanding.
  • A programme where trainees’ needs are matched to the right school.  All placement schools are committed to teacher training.
  • A programme which develops new entrants as reflective, confident practitioners.
  • A programme which is designed to prepare trainees for successful careers in a diverse number of settings.
  • A programme which gives trainees the experience of a whole year in school.
  • A programme where partnership schools offer trainees the opportunity to experience examples of outstanding practice and the opportunity to gain a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE)
