Hamwic SCITT, as part of the Hamwic Education Trust provides high quality training using the full range of partnership resources and professional expertise. It is a school-centred initial teacher training provider. It offers core training in general primary education (five to 11 years). Trainees who successfully complete their training are recommended for qualified teacher status (QTS) and a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) awarded by the University of Winchester.
‘All trainees who have successfully completed their training have gone on to secure permanent employment as teachers, with the majority gaining posts in partnership schools. The partnership has established a good reputation locally, and further afield, for training highly motivated and reliable teachers. It is making a positive contribution to the quality and supply of teachers in the region.’ (Ofsted November 2018)
The SCITT promotes inspirational teaching and classroom based action research to develop a new generation of inspirational and highly effective teachers. The SCITT believes every child within the Hamwic partnerships of schools deserves aspirational, motivating teaching every day. They seek to support new teachers to impact positively on pupils’ lives by improving outcomes and developing confident independent learners able to access a full choice of options at the end of their educational journey in trust schools.
The SCITT offers 25 places annually with placements across our 30 schools in partnerships spread throughout the Southampton, Bournemouth Christchurch and Poole (BCP) and Portsmouth local authorities.
