Teacher Training

Are you considering a career in teaching?

Would you like to be trained by the most successful Trust in the County with the prospect of gaining full time employment at one of our Trust school’s? If so, we would love to hear from you.

We can offer advice and guidance on the various routes into teacher training as well as putting you into contact with one of our training providers.

We currently work with the following providers:

The Deepings School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) program;

St Georges, Sleaford School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) program;

Assessment Only Route (AOR). If you are currently working as an unqualified instructor you can achieve QTS via this route if you have a degree and substantial experience of working in a school environment (usually 2 years). This option would allow you to gain QTS without undergoing a teacher training program. If you have a good degree but no school experience, it is still possible to proceed via this route but you would need to spend some time with us as an unqualified instructor.

The South Lincolnshire Academies Trust offers teacher training primarily via the SCITT route. The training, which is full time, takes one year to complete and leads to QTS. You could choose to complete a PGCE during this time – the traditional PGCE course is split between university and school with 24 weeks for secondary training.

Being accepted onto a teacher training program requires you to have at least some experience of working in a school – to this end, we will always try and accommodate potential trainees with some work experience. Alternatively, if you are unable to spend time with us due to other commitments such as university or work, please visit us and meet some of our staff who would be more than willing to share their experiences of working for the South Lincolnshire Academies Trust. 

Once qualified, we have an exceptional NQT induction program. The Trust is an excellent employer – our retention figures speak for themselves!
