About School Centred ITT


(Formerly MML SCITT)

School Centred ITT is an increasingly popular approach to teacher training.

Endeavour Learning (formerly known as Manchester, Merseyside & Lancashire) is a group of North-West educational establishments who are responsible for the design and delivery of School Centred Initial Teacher Training.

The partnership of schools are Tarleton Academy, Ormskirk School and Golborne High School. 

Led by experienced, practicing teachers and school leaders, the Endeavour Learning SCITT programme leads to qualified teacher status (QTS) and the award of Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) at Masters’ level, which is validated by Liverpool John Moores University.

If you are a graduate and want to train to be a teacher based more fully in a school environment, then this is the course for you.


Teacher training designed by our schools’ outstanding teachers and leaders will ensure a firm grounding in practical skills. Spending more of your training in the school environment, for some trainees, is proving to be the best grounding for a career in teaching. Our programme is designed to create the next generation of outstanding teachers who will help lead our schools to success. Working in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University (already an established respected ITT provider) our trainees also benefit from being firmly grounded in theory, with elements of the course leading to 120 MA credits – a Postgraduate Diploma in Education (which is 2/3 of a Masters).
