East Anglian Schools Trust




EAST SCITT is proud to have been accredited by the Department of Education in July 2020, as an Initial Teacher Training (ITT) provider offering primary (5-11) and secondary (11-19) school-based initial teacher training awarding Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).


With recruitment in Suffolk being quite challenging, we realised the importance of attracting potential new teachers by offering training utilising outstanding classroom practitioners from across the county. EAST SCITT has over 30 partnership schools which enable them to offer contrast within their trainee placements and cover the full geographical area of Suffolk. They work with the University of Buckingham to offer a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with Masters' credits, alongside QTS.  EAST SCITT trainee teachers experience the very best.
