What is a SCITT?What is a SCITT?​A SCITT is a group of schools working in conjunction with a local training provider, such as a university, which offer teacher training courses. They are only available in England. The courses are usually full-time and last one year. The course is a mix of academic and practical, school based elements, but there is a much higher percentage of the course spent on the school-based part. The successful completion of the course leads to QTS, and some SCITT programmes also lead to a PGCE. Applications are made through UCAS Teacher Training. <br><br>Leeds Trinity University currently works with 2 SCITT programmes, Leeds SCITT and Northern Lights SCITT. You can find more information about these programmes on their websites:<div><br></div><div><a href="http://www.leedsscitt.org.uk/">Leeds SCITT</a></div><div><a href="http://www.northernstaracademies.org.uk/northern-lights-scitt/home/">Northern Lights SCITT​</a><br></div>LTU Authoring
