Essex and Thames SCITT


Essex and Thames SCITT is delivering a PGCE course in conjunction with Canterbury Christ Church University. Master’s modules are available. 


SCITT & School Direct Training Routes

This is a fee paying route provided by schools, working in partnership with a SCITT or University.

This is a ‘hands on’ training route supported by excellent theoretical training. A degree 2:2 or above awarded by a UK university, or a recognised equivalent qualification; 50% of the degree must be relevant to the subject you wish to teach; if the degree does not link closely enough, we would require an A level in that subject and a Subject Knowledge Enhancement course would also be recommended.  You will also need a GCSE English and Maths at grade C / 4 or above (or equivalent).

If you are accepted into this route, we will place you in two partnership schools during the year.  The fees for this route are £9,250 inclusive of your university fee. If eligible, you can apply for a Student Loan or self-fund.

School Direct Salaried Route

School Direct Salaried is offered by schools, working in partnership with a SCITT or University.  On this route your fee is paid by your employing school and you will receive a salary on the unqualified teachers’ pay scale for the duration of your training.

Several of our schools offer salaried places each year.  All are keen to find high-quality trainees and invest in your school direct training with the promise of a job in the school at the end of the training if an appropriate position becomes available.
