Teach SouthEast

A unique partnership of outstanding schools

About our teacher training 

Teach SouthEast SCITT delivers high quality, bespoke school centered initial teacher training (ITT) programmes for aspiring secondary teachers across the South East of England.

IMG_3309_web.JPGLed by two outstanding teaching schools, Salesian School and St John the Baptist (SJB), who work together with their vast network of partnership of schools. Both are passionate about training and developing outstanding teachers for the future. We firmly believe that the best place to train teachers effectively, in this complex but incredibly rewarding career, is in schools and our close links within our partnership provide trainees with a broad spectrum of experiences. Since being involved in ITT, Teach SouthEast are proud to say that since our inception 100% of all trainees completing the course passed with qualified teaching status (QTS), with 97% graded ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’.  An impressive 95% from 2015, 81% from 2016 and 80% from 2017 are now employed in schools within the partnership and 100% have been employed by the end of their training year.

"Being trained by outstanding practitioners at the top non-selective state school in the country has given me the best possible start to my teaching career."

Amy Jackson English Trainee 2015/16

"Being mentored by people who genuinely love what they do and are experts in their field gave me the drive to be the very best. They are always there to offer support and give words of encouragement."

 Sara Nelson Geography Trainee 2016/17

"Training with Teach SouthEast was a truly transformative experience. All their support and comprehensive training has ensured that I have transitioned from daunted trainee to a teacher that loves her job and can't wait to come to work every single day."
