SCITT: School-Centred Initial Teacher Training
If you’re a graduate and want to train as a primary teacher, then our SCITT programme is for you. Ranked in the top ten across the country, SCITT leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Professional Graduate certificate in Education (PGCE) linked to Roehampton University. The programme has been designed for teachers who want to work in Jewish schools. SCITT is a one year, full-time Initial Teacher Training programme with sessions taking place at LSJS and in partnership schools.
SCITT operates within a consortium of Orthodox Jewish primary schools and school experience normally takes place in schools within a 12-mile radius of LSJS. The course includes all subject areas taught in primary schools.
As a successful SCITT graduate you will be qualified to teach in any UK primary school. You can choose from two tracks:
A: Primary Teacher specialising in Jewish Studies
Learn how to become an effective practitioner in secular and Jewish Studies classrooms.
B: Primary Teacher
Gain a broad understanding of primary teaching and learn to support Jewish school life.
