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 programme whose next cohort of trainee teachers are due to begin in the academic year 2016-17. We are sure that successful applicants will enjoy an exciting and rewarding year through the many opportunities and rewarding challenges that the YTCA SCITT programme offers.

The YTCA SCITT programme itself maintains 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 isĀ our university partner who will bring their wealth of expertise to this programme.

Each of our schools has a passion for Initial Teacher Training and is in a strong position to deliver a unique experience of professional learning and development within our Federation. 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.

Our schools are largely based in Barnsley, Dewsbury, Snaith, Doncaster, Rotherham and Wakefield: 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.
