ITT with Leeds Teaching School Hub

Leeds Teaching School Hub is proud to have GORSE SCITT as an integral part of our operational model. Judged as an outstanding Initial Teacher Training (ITT) provider in its previous two Ofsted inspections, GORSE SCITT is a School Centred ITT programme with high quality school placements and committed, professional mentors. Leeds Beckett University and Leeds Trinity University are well established providers of ITT and highly respected in our local area offering both undergraduate and postgraduate routes into teaching.

As part of Leeds Teaching School Hub, GORSE SCITT will recruit, train, and retain excellent candidates into teaching to meet the educational needs of the area. Trainee teachers will undertake most of their training within a school environment in one of our supportive and well-established school partners with a training day each week led by our experienced facilitators to learn the theory of teaching. Trainees also undertake a PGCE alongside their QTS Teacher Training course.

Leeds Teaching School Hub is one of 87 Teaching School Hubs in the country designated by the Department for Education to deliver high quality teacher training and development. We are committed to training throughout a teachers’ career and have an excellent reputation for delivery such as through the Early Career Framework for teachers in their first two years of teaching and National Professional Qualifications for teachers ready to take the next step in their career or develop their skills further. This puts us in an excellent position to lead teacher training and support you throughout your career.
