 Teacher Training with the Hampshire LEARN SCITT Partnership

Hampshire LEARN (Leadership, Education and Research Network) SCITT Partnership is a large Teaching School Alliance in Hampshire.  As a SCITT (School-centred Initial Teacher Training) provider, we have the experience and capacity to deliver outstanding training for the next generations of outstanding teachers and we are passionate about doing so.

You will be trained in a highly supportive and friendly environment.  We know through working with trainee teachers for many years how much they can contribute to a school community through their enthusiasm and energy  We will help you to develop the professional knowledge and skills necessary to become highly effective teachers who help young people to achieve their full potential.

Most of the training is delivered by outstanding practitioners in some of the best schools in Hampshire.  You will be assigned to one of the schools in our alliance for most of your training (your ‘home’ school) and you will have a second school placement, typically six weeks, which will give your opportunities to extend your practice in a different setting.  All the schools have comprehensive intakes and you will be working with young people of all abilities.   Our schools are aspirational, wanting the very best outcomes for their pupils and staff.

Staff from the University of Winchester will prepare you for the academic assignments, the successful completion of which is required for the award of a PGCE and you will have access to the University Library, including their on-line resources, for your academic research. Each Friday will be dedicated to training in one of our alliance schools.  On these days, there will be opportunities for discussion, both formal and informal with outstanding practitioners and with your peers.  You will benefit from being part of a highly supportive, professional network.
