We are the Yorkshire Three Counties Alliance School-Centred Initial Teacher Training partnership

On behalf of the Yorkshire Three Counties Alliance and colleagues across our Partnership, we welcome you to find out more about the YTCA SCITT. Our current cohort of Initial Teacher Training (ITT) candidates started in September 2016 and our next cohort of trainee teachers are due to begin in the academic year 2017-18. We are sure that successful applicants to this route to QTS will enjoy an exciting and rewarding year through the many opportunities and rewarding challenges that the YTCA SCITT programme offers. The YTCA SCITT also offers the Assessment Only route to QTS for candidates who have substantial teaching experience which enables them to already be able to demonstrate that they meet the Teachers’ Standards at a high level but who not need the additional training that our ITT route offers.

The YTCA SCITT sets and demonstrates high standards of initial teacher education and has a wealth of experience using Partnership Schools that have an excellent record of securing employment for trainees at the end of their training. Furthermore, a key partner for us is our university partner, Sheffield Hallam University who will bring their wealth of expertise to the YTCA SCITT and they are the provider for the PGCE element of the ITT route to QTS.

Each of our schools has a passion for Initial Teacher Training and professional development for teachers. They are in a strong position to deliver a unique experience of professional learning and development within our alliance. There is a range of very different schools within this School-Centred Initial Teacher Training alliance: each offers its own unique and outstanding experience within the field of educational pedagogy, exemplifying the dynamic nature of learning and teaching today.

Trainee teachers on the YTCA SCITT will have the opportunity to experience the whole range of what excellent teaching and learning looks like in a variety of contexts as they develop into highly effective learners and teachers themselves.
