Course Structure

(Formerly MML SCITT)

The programme consists of school centred training over the full academic year.

Four days per week are in school and one day per week is a conference day which will usually be held in one of the partnership establishments.

The majority of the conferences will focus on planning for learning.  Six of these conferences each year have an explicit focus on subject knowledge development, along with the work you will do with your tutor. Other conferences have an academic focus where you will work with staff from Liverpool John Moores University to develop Masters Level 7 work and Action Research Projects. Conference days, will not only look at the theories behind learning and teaching, to help you plan outstanding lessons, but will also focus on some other key aspects that are essential for success as a teacher. For example:

  • Creative approaches to Teaching and Learning
  • Behaviour and Discipline
  • Applying for jobs
  • Developing further in your first year of teaching
  • Leadership in Education
  • Becoming familiar with OFSTED
  • Subject Knowledge and application

You will have 2 equal placements in 2 contrasting schools.  In additional there will be other opportunities arranged which will include:

  • Undertaking a minor specialism in SEND
  • A short Key Stage 2 placement in a primary school
  • An opportunity to experience Key Stage 5 (Sixth Form)
  • Experience of a Special School and/or Pupil Referral Unit
  • Peer coaching
  • Masters’ Level guidance for action research projects

As you progress through the programme, your timetable and teaching load will be bespoke to your needs and determined by your aptitude on the course. We aim for all trainees to be ‘outstanding’ by the end of the year.
