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

The Yorkshire Three Counties Alliance (YTCA) SCITT has a highly successful track record of developing outstanding teachers. We are a small SCITT which allows us to personalise our training for each trainee as well as offering excellent training and placement opportunities within our dedicated Partner Schools.

We offer two routes to achieving Qualified Teacher Status: The School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) Route and the Assessment Only Route.

Our programmes aim to:

  • Produce outstanding newly-qualified classroom teachers by supporting them to achieve Qualified Teacher Status at the highest level;
  • Enrich the education sector and to deliver a quality of teacher recruitment which will drive forward an enhanced model of school improvement across our Alliance;
  • Provide access to high-quality training and professional development for trainee teachers.

Trainees/unqualified teachers who successfully complete the programme will demonstrate:

  • That they have met the Teachers’ Standards and are prepared to begin their teaching career;
  • That they are life-long learners;
  • That they have high expectations of their students as well as themselves;
  • A secure and detailed subject knowledge;
  • A passion for teaching and educating the next generation.
