Durham SCITT started training teachers in 2005. Over nearly 20 years, we have never rested on our laurels. We have always been innovative and have adapted to the changing needs of the DfE and, most importantly, the trainees we recruit. Every trainee is different and on their own unique journey; we never lose sight of that. We have trained more than 1000 trainees since 2005 and we are pleased to say that most of them are still working in schools. Some have remained as classroom teachers; some have become Heads of Year or Heads of Departments, and some have become Headteachers. However, all of them still say hello when we go into school!
In recent years there have been a lot of changes. From new curriculums, reaccreditation and forming new partnerships, Durham SCITT still has an unwavering commitment to train the best possible teachers for the schools in the North East and beyond. We are hardworking and have high standards, but we support our trainees through their journey to QTS and PGCE. We are passionate about what we do and hope that you will be too.
