Angela Barnes - Director

Welcome from the Director, Angela Barnes

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to our website. If you have a passion for learning and feel inspired to lead the next generation of children to fulfil their potential, then ours is the course for you. 

At South Coast SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) we offer a full time, one year Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in partnership with the University of Winchester. 

Our exciting, challenging course is fast-paced and ‘hands on’. We benefit from being located within the grounds of Bransgore Primary School – an Academy and Teaching School judged to be outstanding by Ofsted.

At South Coast, theory and practice is truly integrated in an exciting learning experience, where Trainees observe and support outstanding teachers whilst also developing their understanding of educational theory. Our ‘SCITT/Training School Experience’ gives our trainees the unique opportunity to work alongside children in all year groups of the Primary School from day one of the programme, giving them a head start to their training in a practical ‘hands-on’ approach and within an inspirational learning environment.

Learning to teach at South Coast SCITT gives trainees the opportunity to:

  • specialise in children aged 3 -11 years
  • gain a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE)
  • gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)
  • gain up to 60 credits towards a Master's Qualification
  • benefit from fantastic career prospects

'A brilliant course - one of the best experiences of my life - I didn’t want it to end!' (South Coast SCITT Trainee, 2012)
