Outstanding teacher training opportunities
Delivered in partnership with schools across the North East and Durham University
The North East Learning Trust is proud to have our very own outstanding teacher training provider - North East SCITT (formerly Shotton Hall SCITT).
With around 100 primary and secondary trainee recruits each year, the SCITT has established itself as a trusted and preferred provider of school-based initial teacher training across the region.
A strong partnership with Durham University means trainees get the best of both worlds training in schools from day one with their PGCE awarded by one of the UK's best universities.
By the end of the ‘back to school’ morning I had made up my mind – I was going to change career, and Shotton Hall SCITT was going to be the place I did it.

For me it's the perfect mixture of a practical and research-based course with hands-on experience from the start as well as the advantage of doing your PGCE theory at Durham University.

The amount of knowledge already imparted has been amazing. It is delivered in an inspiring way so that confidence is developed from an early stage.
