Part Time Training Opportunities

EAST SCITT recognise that potential trainees may have commitments, which ordinarily may put them off considering a career in teaching.

We are proud to offer the opportunity to train on a part time basis. Part time teachers are a true asset to our schools, and moving forward the opportunity for some teachers to work more flexibly is key to the world of education, supporting the well-being of our workforce.

If you choose to apply for a part time programme, you will:

  • Undertake the full two-week induction in Year 1
  • Undertake the majority of the remainder of your cohort training in Year 1
  • Spend two days in school per week in Year 1
  • Spend three days in school per week in Year 2
  • Undertake additional bespoke training as necessary either as a part of the part time cohort or individually

If you choose to apply for a part time programme, we will:

  • Provide you with a SCITT mentor, who will specifically support you as a part time trainee

If you choose to apply for a part time programme, you can train to teach in the following programmes (with the option of QTS only or QTS with PGCE):

  • Primary (5-11)
  • Primary (with Maths)
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • English
  • Maths

From 2022, we will expand our part time programmes to include additional secondary subjects.
