Aspiring teachers are being invited to take the first steps on the career ladder.

North Tyneside Council’s primary teacher training programme, CITT, is searching for its next cohort of teachers for September.

The course is a School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) programme, where learners can secure Qualified Teacher Status and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education, validated by Northumbria University.

Combining extensive classroom-based experience with expert guidance and support, it offers everything needed to succeed in teaching.

Ofsted inspectors, who have rated it Outstanding, particularly noted the high levels of skills and abilities of SCITT trainees and newly-qualified teachers when observed in their school settings.

In past years, 100 per cent of SCITT students have said they were very satisfied with their training and would recommend the training course to others.

It will equip trainees with the necessary subject knowledge and practical skills to be able to teach anywhere. Trainees will also be provided with a free laptop, free Wi-Fi access and free office printing.
