AA Teamworks West Yorkshire School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) is a high quality training programme, offering trainees to learn through an established Initial Teacher Education. Our Primary School partnership is made up of 27 Primary Schools specialising in the training of Early Years 3-7 teachers and Primary 5-11 teachers. Our Secondary partnership is with School Direct Mosaic, concentrating on English and Maths.

Our Primary school partners are based in Calderdale & Kirklees and our Secondary partners in Halifax, Bradford & Leeds. Partnering with local schools in the area, we feel fully encompasses the geographical, social and economic diversity of West Yorkshire, offering our alliance breadth and depth.

Ourselves and our dynamic range of partner schools share in the common belief of investing and supporting our next generation of teachers. Our programme ensures training is of the highest quality with full support from our experienced tutors and mentors, who are fully committed to developing future teachers. Our training is considered to be the most effective way of teaching and learning according to research evidence. Our rigorous programme is based entirely in schools, starting in a classroom from day one and includes training days taught by a specialist team of staff including classroom teachers, school leaders, SENCos, examiners and Specialist Leaders in Education. Our trainees achieve Qualified Teacher Status as well as a top up PGCE from the University of Huddersfield.
