Hull is an excellent city to both live, train and teach in.

Hull is an excellent city to both live, train and teach in. Teaching in Hull schools is exciting, challenging and rewarding. We represent a strong partnership of 25 Primary School, 3 Special Schools, 3 Secondary Schools and one School Direct Partnership.

Our ‘hands on’ approach means trainees are in school from day one learning by working alongside an experienced mentor teacher. This is complimented by central training delivered by teachers who are Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE) which means that they are currently teaching and recognised as experts in their specific field.

….and hopefully the lives of the children I will be teaching”

Testimonials

Here’s what Trainees say about Hull SCITT :

Hull SCITT undoubtedly prepared me for my NQT year. It gave me extremely solid foundations to build on.

The experience of teaching almost full time by the end of the year meant that it wasn’t a shock to me during my NQT year.

James

Hull SCITT gave me the opportunity to take part in an intensive and hands-on programme.

This approach, I feel, has better prepared me for the real life day-to-day workings of a classroom and wider school.

Rachel

The most important thing I have learnt is that you shouldn’t expect too much of yourself straight away.

You cannot be perfect in everything you do and you are learning throughout your whole career. Also, progress of the children is everything!

James

The SCITT programme has been the making of me. I have learned to build resilience through the many observations I had.

I learned to say when I need help and to be realistic about my expectations. I would do it all again in a heartbeat. I absolutely love my job!

Claire

I appreciated how the course prepared me for teacher life.

The course has high standards; therefore, it applies pressure and challenge to ensure you are aware of the demands in teaching.

Ashleigh

For me, a career in teaching was something I knew I wanted to pursue from a young age.

Giving something back to the community I grew up in myself has always been at the forefront of my mind. Plus, young people are pretty cool!
