It's not just our graduates who say we're outstanding - Ofsted says we are, too...


"High quality, personalised training that inspires trainees to do their best."


"A highly motivating can-do ethos."


"Trainees are inspired by passionate practitioners."


"The outstanding quality of the input ensures trainees have up-to-date knowledge of local and national initiatives."


"The SCITT ensures that trainees develop into reflective practitioners with a clear philosophy of early years education."


"The centre offers spacious accommodation and the advantage of access for trainees to the local authority's team of early years specialists, the resources they use in schools and the courses they run."


Our local headteachers have also praised the calibre of the course and the
graduates they've employed:

"I never fail to be impressed by the quality of the course, the expertise of the staff and the dedication and determination shown by the trainees. This is a very special PGCE that produces high quality graduates expertly prepared for their NQT year."

Tony Rigg, headteacher, Amberley Primary School, Cramlington.


"We have always been impressed by the high calibre of students we receive from the North Tyneside SCITT. The course prepares the students well to cope with the demands and challenges of being a teacher. We have been fortunate to employ SCITT graduates and have been delighted with the impact they have made in our school."
