School-centred initial teacher training (SCITT) leading to the award of PGDipEd (QTS)

The SCITT fee-paying route is open to home and EU graduates with settled or pre-settled status. Trainees train in the 11-16 phase and, in addition, we guarantee A' Level experience in at least one of the two placement schools. All trainees who successfully complete this route will be awarded PGDipEd (QTS)*. The Post-Graduate Diploma of Education with Qualified Teacher Status is like a PGCE, but the PGDE has the advantage of offering 120 credits. The credits may be used in the future towards the University of Birmingham's MA in Teaching Studies. 

Successful trainees on our SCITT route are highly likely to find teaching posts in KEC schools at the end of the programme. 

APPLY here, via the DfE's Apply service. 

* Fee paying trainees can opt to take our QTS-only route if they wish.

 Hear from Tom, former trainee



I think it is great that we are fully immersed into our schools and are able to feel like a member of staff rather than a temporary guest.
