School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) leading to the award of PGDipEd (QTS)

The SCITT fee-paying route is open to home and EU graduates.  All trainees who successfully complete this route will be awarded PGDipEd (QTS)*. The Post-Graduate Diploma of Education with Qualified Teacher Status is like a PGCE but has the advantage of offering 120 credits. This offers tremendous value for money and the credits may be used in the future towards the University of Birmingham's MA in Teaching Studies.

Successful trainees on our SCITT route are highly likely to find teaching posts in KEC schools at the end of the programme. 

Applications should be made via UCASTT. The UCAS provider code for the King Edward's Consortium SCITT programmes is K50.

Please note that in previous years, we ran our fee-paying programme under the auspices of School Direct. This year we were advised by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) to bid for all fee-paying places under the SCITT route. The content of our SCITT programme is identical to our old School Direct (fee) programme. The change is in name only.

* Fee paying trainees can opt to take our QTS-only route if they wish.

I think it is great that we are fully immersed into our schools and are able to feel like a member of staff rather than a temporary guest.
