Outstanding pupil progress is held at the core of the Consilium SCITT. Our trainees are skilled at observing learning, have an acute understanding of what makes people learn best, and teach intuitively, enabling all pupils to progress 'beyond expectations'. Our aim is that the trainees, as well as their pupils, will go 'beyond expectations' in terms of the progress that they make. Outstanding teaching leads to outstanding progress.
Consilium SCITT aims towards the following outcomes:
To provide outstanding training opportunities for trainees in a range of secondary subjects.
To mentor and coach trainees effectively, guiding their development towards becoming outstanding teachers, experts in their specialist subject.
To develop the future generation of outstanding teachers that will continue on to provide an exceptional level of education to learners, both in and out of Salford.
To ensure all trainees make outstanding progress towards meeting all of the Teachers' Standards and achieving QTS.
Throughout the year there are four review points as well as two assignments based on a range of themes around teaching and learning to complete.
We also offer a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE SCITT) awarded by Manchester Metropolitan University.
