Primary and Secondary Teacher Training within the Leeds area

The Leeds Teaching School Alliance SCITT offers a fresh and dynamic route into teaching, providing high quality Initial Teacher Training around Leeds.

The Alliance was accredited by the National College of Teaching and Leadership as a School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) provider in August 2014 and is at the forefront of Teacher Training. New entrants to the teaching profession are able to train directly with the Leeds Teaching School Alliance SCITT in schools within The GORSE Academies Trust and also in partner schools in the local area.

As a Teaching School, we have been involved in training new teachers within The GORSE Academies Trust for many years in partnership with local universities, but as a SCITT we are the provider of this training enabling us to really focus on training outstanding new teachers in the excellent schools within our partnership.

The Alliance has an outstanding record of recruiting trainees from its programme to newly qualified teaching positions within its schools. Likewise graduates from the SCITT are in high demand in schools outside of the Alliance.
