Aims of The Programmes

The Programmes Aim to:

  • Enable trainees to achieve recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status and gain the award of Post Graduate Certificate of Education at Masters level;
  • Increase the supply of appropriately trained, suitably qualified and inspirational teachers in Yorkshire primary schools;
  • Provide access to quality training and professional development for trainee teachers.

Programme Learning Outcomes

Trainees who successfully complete either the full or part-time programmes will demonstrate:

  • That they have met the Teachers’ Standards;
  • A secure and detailed subject knowledge required by the National Curriculum;
  • That they are fully prepared to begin their teaching career;
  • That they are life-long learners;
  • That they have high expectations of themselves and their pupils;
  • A commitment to teaching.

The programmes are structured to support a gradual development and proficiency in the Teachers’ Standards.  Trainees are supported by school based tutors, link tutor, tutor group leaders and academic tutors who move them from an apprentice teacher to a competent and thoughtful professional.

How would you rate the quality of support from the YSCITT on a scale of 1 to 10? The course is very personal. I feel confident and comfortable to talk to Vicki, Sian and Antonia especially about any problems I may have. Vicki and Antonia are incredibly supportive and experienced and without fail have helped me with any problem I may have!!!
