School Centered Initial Teacher Training (SCITT)

At St Egwin’s we feel that it is vital that tomorrow’s teachers have the best possible start to their careers in teaching, and this means a placement where they are encouraged and guided towards their aim of becoming a teacher.

Every member of our staff is dedicated to making your placement the best possible experience. As a trainee with us, you will have your own mentor and a weekly meeting to review the feedback that you will have received during the week, to set targets and to assess your progress towards the teachers’ standards. As well as this, you will receive a wealth of informal feedback, tips and advice in a friendly and supportive environment.


Bursaries are available for some subjects.

If you have any queries regarding teacher training prior to applying, please complete the form below.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my school placement at St Egwin’s!"

"I felt extremely welcomed into the school, so much so that I felt like any other member of staff."

"The support I have received from both my subject and professional mentor has gone above and beyond my expectations"

- H Gosling PGCE Geography, 2nd Placement, 2019/20


"I cannot thank J enough for how well she supported me during my time at St. Egwin’s. She was always supportive, never overbearing and was always there to offer help or guidance, yet at the same time giving me control and allowing me to take responsibility for groups of lessons."

- L Urquhart, PGCE Primary, 1st Placement, 2019/20


"St Egwin’s have supported me thoroughly throughout this placement ."

- S. Andrews-Ward, B.A. Ed Primary, 2017/18


"The pupils and staff both made me feel respected as a teacher rather than just a student."

- D. Thomas, B.A. Ed Primary, 2017/18


"In a middle School there is much less exam stress (Y7 & Y8) than high School and therefore being placed here has allowed me to try new ideas which I may not have had teaching GCSE students."

- Anon, PGCE Science, 2017/18
