Train to Teach


Kent Catholic Schools' Partnership is proud to be working in partnership with Teach First to offer our secondary focused School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) which will enable trainees to gain Qualified Teacher Status and a PGCE.


By choosing our secondary, subject specific programme, trainees will benefit from hands-on experience at two or more KCSP secondary schools and learn from experienced teaching professionals.  Our programme includes a six week placement in other educational settings, during the year to make sure that trainees qualify with a broad teaching experience.


The subjects we offer are:


  • English
  • Geography
  • History
  • Maths
  • Modern Foreign Languages
  • Religious Education
  • Science


Our SCITT programme is ideal for people who want to make a difference in their community and learn to teach on the job from day one.  Trainees will be interacting with pupils every day and working as a member of teaching staff in a school local to them.  


Training is designed in collaboration with Teach First's expert curriculum designers and sequenced to ensure trainees are focused on areas of teaching that are most relevant to the time of year.  The training will include a mixture of online and face-to-face elements and will ensure trainees develop the knowledge and skills needed to become a great teacher.
