A friend of mine received a parking fine for parking incorrectly – why was this? What do you class as parking incorrectly?A friend of mine received a parking fine for parking incorrectly – why was this? What do you class as parking incorrectly?​Parking fines are issued when people park in an irresponsible way that either restricts parking for someone else, or represents a danger to safety (for example by blocking access routes for emergency services). Irresponsible parking includes parking on double yellow lines, across more than one space, on grass verges, or in an accessible parking space reserved for people with disabilities/mobility issues. Fines will also be issued if a parking permit or pay and display ticket is not clearly displayed, or if someone parks in a car sharing space before 11am. <br>LTU Authoring

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
