Salaried School Direct Programmes

Following the Government announcement on 13th October, our Salaried Primary programme is under review.  We are currently exploring an alternative salaried programme.  

Core SCITT Programme

  • Full Time programme in PE (Provider code is G12 and the course code is C66X)

We have 1 School Direct PE training place and 1 Core SCITT PE training place for September 2021.  There’s no difference in the training you will receive on either the Core SCITT or School Direct programme. Offering a PE training place on the Core programme allows us to recruit an additional trainee to this popular subject.

Assessment Only (currently closed)

This is a 12 week employment based route for achieving Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) whilst working as a teacher. This is only open to experienced candidates currently employed as unqualified teachers. Please contact us for more information. 

Unfortunately we are not accepting any AO applications until September 2021.  If you would like to apply nearer the time, please get in touch.

Teach Independent

A two year Initial Teacher Training programme for unqualified teachers employed in the independent secotor. This programme is tailored to meet the needs of the Independent Sector, delivered and accredited by George Abbot SCITT in partnership with RGS Guildford.

If you are from an independent school interested in helping your staff achieve QTS, please get in touch.

Independent schools bring us their current staff to train.  While we cannot place School Direct trainees in an independent setting as their main placement, it may be possible to do this for the second, minor placement.
