Primary School-Centred Initial Teacher Training with Qualified Teacher Status

Early Years Specialism

 

Your School-based Route to Becoming an Early Years or Primary Teacher with QTS

Devised to develop high-quality teachers to work in the early years, our School-centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) programme benefits from the direct contributions of Professor Chris Pascal and Professor Tony Bertram from CREC, both highly experienced teacher educators, and a wider team of early years specialists and placement mentors.

In addition to covering all the Teaching Standards, the training includes an emphasis on multi-agency working, leadership in the EYFS, working with 2-year-olds, SEND, and practitioner research.

Fees and Funding

Course Fees

Course fees for this programme are £9,000.


Most people will be eligible for a loan to cover these fees, which is not repayable until you are in full-time employment and earning at least £21,000 a year.

Loans & Bursaries

Full-time UK students can apply for a maintenance loan to help with their living costs. The amount that you qualify for will depend on your personal circumstances, and you may be required to provide information about your household income. 

Grants & Allowances

Some UK students may qualify for additional funding to support your teacher training, such as Parents' Learning Allowances, Childcare Grants, or Child Tax Credits.


This extra funding is usually non-repayable. 

 

"Being a trainee teacher is full time, it means a lot of hard work and long days but I can assure you, if you’re cut out for it, you will thoroughly enjoy the course, as I did! 


It was great to be a part of a close learning community and go on the journey together. I met some very inspiring people who I think have helped me be the teacher I am today."
