FAQs – Initial Teacher Training

How will Teaching Schools Hubs lead and deliver on Initial Teacher Training in their designated areas?

Teaching School Hubs will deliver ITT in their areas either as a School Direct lead/partner school or as a SCITT provider/partner school. The Teaching School Hubs will work with ITT providers in their areas to provide oversight and influence to ensure local ‘need’ is met.


Will current SCITT and School Direct providers be able to continue with their role in Initial Teacher Training?

Yes.  The Teaching School Hub’s role is to have a position of influence within Hub areas in order to ensure the provision on offer, across The Teaching School Hub area, meets the supply and demands of the current work force needs.  It would make sense for SCITTS and School Direct providers to work collaboratively with local Teaching School Hubs.
