Teacher training

Train to teach through The Deepings SCITT

Anthem Schools Trust offers school-based training through The Deepings SCITT, run by a dedicated team at The Deepings secondary school in Deeping St James, Peterborough.

School-Based Teacher Training is a great route to gaining the skills you need to become a teacher and you could be specially selected by one of them with a job in mind just for you. Imagine not just learning the theory of teaching but putting it into practice on a daily basis! The Deepings SCITT offers just that: a way to gain classroom experience and put yourself ahead of the competition!

How it works...

The Deepings SCITT offers teacher training programmes towards Qualified Teacher Status in around 30 primary and secondary host schools, mostly in the South Lincolnshire area. This comes with the added option of a PGCE with Masters accreditation from the University of Hull.

Across the schools which form the partnership behind The Deepings SCITT there is an unparalleled resource of experienced teaching staff who, alongside your highly trained mentors, will help, encourage and guide you.

“The tutors have made me feel that I can approach them with any concerns or questions. They are always willing to help and go above and beyond.”

School-based training will equip you with priceless real life classroom experience as well as the comfort of an outstanding support network behind you.
