SCITT or School Centred Initial Teacher Training is a school led teacher training route.
Associated Merseyside Partnership SCITT has been given Department for Education approval to plan, deliver and assess teacher training courses for primary and secondary teachers.
AMP SCITT provides practical, hands-on training delivered by experienced, practising teachers, based within Partnership schools. The SCITT course covers an academic year, from September to July with induction events in the summer months. Successful completion results in trainees being awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a PGCE qualification.
Our high quality training ensures that our Trainees are supported to secure their first teaching post and have a flying start to their teaching career.

If you want your training to be based at a school where you can be fully immersed in the life of a teacher from day one, a school-led training course is for you.

Across the country there are school-led training options for both graduates and career changers who want hands-on training in a school.
Many SCITTs and schools call their courses School Direct courses. This is an increasingly popular choice for those who hope to secure a teaching post in the network of schools where they are training.
Just like SCITT courses, with School Direct you get practical, hands-on training and education based in good schools across the country. School Direct courses are designed by groups of schools – with QTS provided by a university or a SCITT.
We provide practical, hands-on teacher training delivered by experienced, practising teachers, based in schools in our partnership. All our courses are a year long from September to July and results in QTS.
All of our trainees will also be awarded PGCE from Liverpool Hope University. (60 Masters credits).
