Initial Teacher Training (ITT)

Working in partnership with Leeds Beckett University to provide a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE); a one-year programme for graduates that wish to undergo Initial Teacher Training (ITT) to achieve the professional standards required for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Schools with Schools provides its students with:

  • academic tuition through lectures, seminars and tutorials with both University and School based staff

  • teaching experience through placements in mainstream and Special School provision across our partnership schools

  • Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), the accreditation that enables you to teach in state-maintained and special schools in England and Wales.

Our PGCE programme focuses on the development of the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding that relate to learning and teaching in schools.

Both School and University aspects of the programme count towards the assessment of the PGCE and as evidence that you have met the standards for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
