Flying High Futures
We offer a school-centred training route into teaching through our status as a SCITT. This hands-on route into teaching provides all trainees with a blend of school experience, alongside an innovative and inspiring taught programme which leads to the qualifications of QTS and a PGCE. We accept graduates who have achieved a 2:2 in any BA Honours Degree subject and have GCSEs at grade C or above in English, Maths, and Science. We work with a wide range of primary schools across Nottinghamshire, Nottingham and Derbyshire schools.
Our training is delivered by experts in their field. Our specialist leads are first and foremost teachers, but also experienced at facilitation and developing people and are up to date with the very latest educational thinking, research and developments.
Our programme has been carefully designed to ensure you receive the highest quality experiences whilst on school placement and during your training. All our placement schools are carefully chosen to ensure they meet our standards of support and that they are suited to your preferences and needs. During your placements, you are supported with a designated class mentor and learning coach who are highly skilled and will support your growth as a teacher, as well as regular visits from our highly skilled professional tutors.

Our SCITT course involves trainees spending a large proportion of their time learning the craft ‘on the job’ with the support of some of the best teachers in the country. With our extensive partnership of schools, we can ensure your placements are closely matched to your individual needs. We will provide you with experience of different settings and across different year groups.
Large and small, rural and urban, our schools offer varied placements, ensuring teachers are well prepared for their future classrooms. Your training year is your first step into your new career and we invest time into helping you to secure your first job following your training year.
A key element of the training is a two day residential which takes place in the Autumn term. This carefully planned experience explores how school trips can be used to bring the curriculum to life along with considerations such as the logistics of planning a school trip and strategies for behaviour, health and safety and risk management. There are also a range of outdoor learning activities, exploring how fieldwork and research can contribute to an enriched curriculum.
Always a highlight of the year and a great way for the cohort to get to know each other and establish friendships for life!
