Aims of North Tyneside SCITT

The aim of North Tyneside SCITT is to train teachers who will embody excellence in the field of primary education. The SCITT partnership brings together expertise in the field of Initial Teacher Education (ITE), excellent practice and commitment to professional development from schools in North Tyneside and the opportunity for an enriched training experience through involvement with North Tyneside School Improvement Service.


North Tyneside School Partnership

The overall responsibility for the management of the SCITT lies with the Management Committee that includes headteachers from partnership schools. The main purpose of the partnership is to provide a programme for trainees that will ensure that they meet the standards to be recommended for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) as laid down by the Department for Education (DfE) in order to embark on a successful teaching career. The partnership will ensure that trainees' developing understanding and skills are supported by pertinent evidence based research to enable them to develop their critical and reflective approach to classroom practice.


Equality and Diversity

North Tyneside SCITT endeavours to improve all aspects of equality and diversity through fostering good relationships with all equality groups, advancing the equality of opportunity for all and eliminating unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation. Please read the NT SCITT's equality and diversity policy for further information.


Lodging a Complaint

All parties involved within the North Tyneside SCITT partnership hope that the trainee experience will be a good one and that there will be few occasions when there is any dissatisfaction or disappointment with the service and facilities provided. We recognise however that very occasionally this may not be the case. The NT SCITT complaints procedure details how a complaint can be made.
