Partnership Schools

Our SCITT Partnership spans the areas of Hampshire, Dorset and Bournemouth. Many of our Trainees find employment within the Partnership and often go on to become South Coast school-based Mentors or contributors to the taught Course.

A distinctive feature of our Partnership Schools is their commitment to providing high quality provision, reflected by nationally recognised awards and inspection reports. The schools serve diverse communities including rural and urban catchments. There are a mix of Church of England, Catholic, and non denominational schools. All our schools have a strong record of inclusive practice and include Travellers' children and growing numbers of children from migrant workers.

Quotes from Partner Head Teachers

‘I am always amazed, year after year, of the quality of trainees from the South Coast SCITT. They leave their training with in-depth, practical knowledge, coupled with the thirst to improve as teachers into their NQT year. I don’t hesitate to recruit from this provider and I encourage all local schools to do the same.’ 
Head Teacher, St. James’ Church of England Academy

'I have appointed several members of staff who have trained with South Coast SCITT. They have demonstrated a real undertanding of the Early Years and Key Stage 1 curriculum and have applied this to their planning and delivery of the curriculum. I have found South Coast SCITT Trainees to be reflective practitioners who strive to become outstanding teachers. They are committed to the development of their teaching and to supporting whole school improvement.’ Highcliffe St. Mark Primary School

‘At Bransgore Primary Teaching School, we have employed 11 NQTs from South Coast SCITT, over a period of ten years. I value employing South Coast SCITT Trainees because of their thorough knowledge and understanding of learning and teaching, and how schools work. All these SCITT teachers have had a major contribution to my school’s outstanding status.’ Bransgore Primary School

'We have employed 4 South Coast SCITT Trainees over the past few years and have found them all to be exemplary practitioners with an excellent understanding of pedagogical theories of the ways in which children learn and how theory is translated into outstanding practice within the classroom. Each of the Trainees have effectively led and managed subjects and 2 of the Trainees are now part of my leadership team, taking responsibility for leading practice within their year groups.' Ringwood Infant School
