What our trainees are saying about us:
Being a SCITT trainee has allowed me to interact with young people and demonstrate my passion for learning and history. It has been fast paced and has really allowed me to integrate as a teacher from the offset. I really enjoyed the training I received at the SCITT – it was up to date, relevant and allowed us to reflect and critique new research and pedagogical theories.

One of the benefits of choosing a SCITT route was feeling I was a valued part of the science team right from the start rather than a ‘visiting trainee’. I was able to gain QTS and a PGCE qualification but this was all done through the SCITT – the best of both worlds! The support I received from my mentor, subject knowledge tutor and SCITT team wasinvaluable and tailored to my own progress. I chose Landau Forte SCITT as I was impressed by the positive relationships between staff and students on my visits and I have not been disappointed. Come and see for yourself!
The support that is constantly offered by everyone I come into contact with has been fantastic. The quality of the Subject Knowledge sessions is excellent. It is completely personalised and is therefore relevant to our own planning and experiences.
The SCITT staff are extremely supportive and ensure that all trainees are offered helpful guidance from mentors, subject specialist tutors and outside agencies to become successful teachers. The year will be hard but it will be worth it in the end, the team will make sure you flourish in your chosen career.
The SCITT course is 100% the best way into teaching. The framework of learning and the level of support is fantastic; working with mentors and building up your teaching skills and timetable throughout the year. Trainees get to spread their wings and experience the environment of another school during a second contrasting placement after Christmas, before returning to their main placement to complete the course. I can’t recommend Landau SCITT enough. If you are considering it, do it!
The reason I chose Landau and the SCITT route was due to the fact it offered me a chance to be fully involved in the school’s community and feel a real part of a subject department from the outset. I have had the chance to witness a variety of teaching styles which has helped me to form my own. This, coupled with various opportunities for new experiences, has helped me to become a fully-fledged teacher in such a brilliant school environment.
