Teacher Training places 2021-22

Recruitment for Astra SCITT salaried (QTS-only) and unsalaried (bursary led/fee funded QTS and QTS with PGCE) training places for September 2021 is now closed, but will re-open in October for the September 2022 intake. Details of all our 2021 courses, for reference, can be found here

As well as awarding QTS through Astra’s weekly core training programme, the SCITT also works with Goldsmiths, University of London for the optional PGCE ‘top up’ qualification, worth 60 Masters credits.

Since 2013, the Astra partnership has considerable experience of training teachers and recognises and values the enthusiastic contribution that they make to our school communities. Employment rates for trainees are high and outcomes and completion rates are also well above national benchmarking figures. Expert staff in our schools share their knowledge and good practice to ensure that trainees are well supported to develop into good and outstanding teachers. We also aim to ensure the right trainee is matched to the right school for both the main and second teaching placements. In November 2018 Astra was judged as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted in all four categories for initial teacher training. The full Ofsted inspection report is available via the Astra website or Ofsted website.

To find out more, please contact a member of the Astra SCITT team via / telephone 01494 787573. Please also see our Astra prospectus. Details of forthcoming open days and events, as well as more information about our training can be found on the Astra website.
