Are you looking for the chance to be part of a rewarding profession?

Are you looking to pave the way to a rewarding career?

Are you are a Graduate who wants to train to teach in a school environment? 

Then you should consider a Schools-based Initial Teacher Training programme.

The Doncaster ITT Partnership’s Primary and Secondary ITT programmes are designed and delivered by Alliances of Doncaster schools working in partnership with the Local Authority and the University of Hull.

If you would prefer to spend more time training in the classroom, putting theory into practice and gaining confidence through increased contact with the school environment, then a school-based training programme is a good option for you.

Trainees are based in a 'training school', but will be able to complete a number of teaching practices at other Partner schools within Doncaster. Trainees will be taught and supported by experienced practising teachers with training tailored to their individual learning needs, all delivered locally in Doncaster schools and training centres. 

The ‘SCITT’ (School Centred ITT) and ‘School Direct’ programmes, which are one year full-time courses, will lead to trainees gaining Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) on the successful completion of their training. An optional additional PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education) awarding 60 Masters Credits and delivered by the University of Hull, is also available. 


Applicants must ensure that they meet all of the requirements of the programme before applying for a place:

  • GCSE, CSE or equivalent at grade C* or above in Mathematics and English;
  • GCSE, CSE or equivalent, at grade C* or above in Science, if wishing to teach Primary;
  • A full degree* (preferably 2:2 or above) where at least half the degree is in a relevant national curriculum subject. 


New GCSE grading requires that a Grade 4 or above is deemed to be equivalent;

Applicants in the final year of their degree will have to provide their supporting school with evidence from the degree provider/lead tutor that the necessary grade will be obtained prior to the start of the programme in September 2018. 

Trainees will be required to pay tuition-fees of £7,400 (far less than most university based PGCE courses) for the QTS course – accessed via the Student Loan Company (SLC), but may be eligible to receive a bursary, scholarship or grant funding while they train. Applicants with higher level degrees, training in ‘priority’ subjects, may be eligible for up to £32,000 bursaries/scholarships. The QTS plus PGCE will be £8,600.
