Poole SCITT – Excellence In Education

Poole SCITT is a ‘Schools-Centered Initial Teacher Training Course’ leading to a Post-Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) in Primary Education with Qualified Teacher Status. Created through partnerships between the participating primary schools, Borough of Poole Local Education Authority and Kingston University in Surrey, to offer initial teacher training, at primary school level, for 30 suitably qualified graduates.

“To inspire, motivate and educate future teachers to have a lifelong commitment to raising standards in schools by unlocking every learner’s potential”

Accredited by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) as an official provider of initial teacher training, it has been recently graded by OFSTED as Outstanding in all areas (2014).  It is validated by Kingston University for PGCE and  carries ‘M’ credits towards a Masters degree.
