Train To Teach


Hamwic SCITT, as part of the Hamwic Education Trust, provides the highest quality training using the full range of our resources and professional expertise. This training is grounded in research-led practice and is focused on helping all young people in our trust reach their very fullest potential.

We believe that the highest quality inspirational teaching and classroom-based action research is the vehicle by which a new generation of inspirational and highly effective teachers will develop.

Every child within our Partnership of schools deserves the highest quality provision. Our new teachers will impact on their lives by improving outcomes and developing confident independent members of the community.

Hamwic SCITT is a school-based route to gaining Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a PGCE is awarded by Bath Spa University. It offers the opportunity to train to become a teacher while working in the classroom and being part of an established teaching team in one of our Partnership Schools. Alongside this practical school-centred training, our trainees engage in research-based enquiry through their PGCE with Bath Spa University.

Teaching is an immensely rewarding career where you use your skills to inspire young people to explore their future. Here are two Hamwic SCITT trainees now qualified and teaching in our schools sharing useful insights about their journey.
