Why train with us?
We have a small, friendly and supportive team.
We hold a 7 year record of offering exceptional teacher training.
The John Taylor SCITT has been a provider of Initial Teacher Education since 2014. Based in the charming Staffordshire village of Barton-under-Needwood, the SCITT is based in a bespoke Training Centre on the site of John Taylor High School, an outstanding school which enjoys a high reputation locally and nationally as a school with an enviable academic record based on inspirational teaching and exceptional pastoral care. As a SCITT we pride ourselves on the fact that as a relatively small provider we know all our trainees really well and can offer highly personalised support which enables our trainees to secure excellent outcomes.
All our programmes are school led, and all our partner schools fully involved in both the design and the delivery of our programmes. Our vision as a SCITT is to support all schools and trusts in our alliance to attract and recruit high quality teachers and in the 7 years that we have been operating as a SCITT we are very proud of the fact that many of our trainees do secure employment in our partner schools. Recruitment and retention are at the heart of what we do.
