Mission Statement

Kingsbridge EIP SCITT and its Hubs prepares Associate Teachers (including Apprentice Teachers) to become outstanding teachers through inspirational and high-quality teacher training.
We focus on understanding and promoting effective learning and pupil progress through a creative school partnership which develops professional expertise.

What is it like to be a trainee at this ITE partnership? (Ofsted, March 2022)

The quality of centre- and school-based training successfully prepares primary and secondary trainees, including apprentices, to become early career teachers. Trainees benefit from high-quality and consistent mentoring.
All trainees who spoke with inspectors said that the partnership provides them with effective wraparound care, guidance and support. Trainees told inspectors that leaders of the SCITT are professional and consistent in how they lead, manage and deliver training.

Trainees commented that leaders think carefully and deeply about the training that they provide. They said that trainers and mentors stay up to date with educational thinking. Communication between all partners, including trainees and mentors, is a strength. Trainees are successfully prepared to manage pupils’ behaviour. Equally, trainees fully understand their important role in safeguarding pupils. All trainees appreciate how to
manage their workload and the wider demands of teaching.

Trainees have a secure understanding of how to adapt the delivery of their subject curriculums for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Similarly, they receive appropriate training to enable them to teach pupils who speak English as an additional language.

Trainees, including apprentices on primary programmes, gain an insightful understanding of how to teach early reading and phonics. They also learn in depth about the early years and about the foundation subjects of the primary national curriculum. Secondary trainees flourish because they learn about the uniqueness of their chosen subject specialism.
