School-Centred Initial Teacher Training

George Spencer Academy has been named by the ‘Good Teacher Training Guide’ as one of the Top 10 teacher trainer providers in the country and the second best primary teacher trainer nationally. The report comes hot on the back of the academy’s ‘outstanding’ Ofsted in May 2015, which also praised the impact of the school’s wider partnerships.

School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) is now one of the best ways to begin, or progress, your career in education. The George Spencer Academy SCITT offers you unrivalled support, professional guidance and a proven track record in producing highly employable, fully trained teachers.
