Assessment for Learning
100% of our teacher training graduates get jobs after they have finished their training, the majority in our SCITT partner schools.

School Direct SCITT
We offer both primary and secondary, salaried and unsalaried routes. Apply directly via UCAS to a Lead School of your choice in the Teaching London SCITT Partnership. You will be at this school, or another in their partnership, for most of the year but will still have the second placement at another school that all our trainees benefit from
Core PGCE: Early Years and General Primary
You will spend the majority of your time teaching in school and training on the job but will have at least 30 days of centre-based training. We will arrange for you to undertake three separate school experiences, going to your first placement school in the Autumn term, a second in the Spring term and returning to the first school for your final Summer term placement.
Completed in 12 weeks or less, the Assessment Only route is specifically designed to be straightforward and supportive to enable busy teachers to achieve QTS without further training. Apply direct to Teaching London if you are an unqualified teacher with two years’ experience in Early Years, Primary, Secondary or FE.
