Accrediting providers: Leicester and Leicestershire SCITT

About Us

Christ the King RC Primary School are proud to be the lead school for an alliance of faith primary schools offering School Direct Initial Teacher Training.  This alliance is made up of a network of outstanding and good schools from Leicester and Leicestershire. All the alliance schools are dedicated to ensuring all aspects of the ITT training they lead are of the highest quality. The alliance expects to use this route to grow outstanding teachers and leaders to employ in their schools and across Leicestershire. Trainees applying to this School Direct partnership can expect at least one, and often two, of their three school placements to be within faith schools in Leicester and Leicestershire .

About Your Training Provider

School Direct is a route to train teachers that follows the SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) philosophy of putting schools at the heart of the ITT process. All trainees on School Direct programmes accredited by the L & L SCITT will specialise within training to teach either FS & KS1 (3-7yrs) pupils or KS1 & KS2 (5-11yrs) pupils.

Partner Schools

The SCITT work in very close partnership with 4 local National Teaching School alliances and over 60 primary and special schools across Leicester City and the County. Through these close partnerships we are able to offer every trainee on our SCITT and School Direct routes excellent, personalised support within school based training. These partnerships also offer excellent career development opportunities and training for ex-SCITT trainees their NQT year and beyond.
