Recruiting through the North East Partnership SCITT

Are you looking for an outstanding Physical Education NQT for September 2017?

  • Then recruit through the North East Partnership SCITT.


  • The North East Partnership SCITT is the largest provider of physical education initial teacher training in the north east and one of the largest in the country.
  • We have consistently been graded as outstanding by Ofsted – 2005, 2009, 2013 and in November 2013 were graded outstanding in every category.
  • We were identified as the best provider of postgraduate teacher training in the country in the 2015 Smithers’ Good Teacher Training Guide.
  • Our outcomes for trainees are exceptionally high. In the last four years all trainees have been graded as either good or outstanding trainee teachers, with the majority being outstanding. All have found jobs in schools and over 50% of our 2012/13 cohort are now in promoted posts.
  • As a single subject SCITT we really focus on developing our trainees’ subject knowledge.   By the end of the training year trainees will have attended subject knowledge enhancement sessions in all areas of the physical education national curriculum plus a range of workshops related to teaching physical education theory. We also provide opportunities for all trainees to gain a wide range of additional teachers’ qualifications and national governing body awards including trampolining, swimming, parkour, handball, dodgeball, frisbee and athletics.
  • We have strong links with key national organisations including the Association for Physical Education (AfPE) and the Youth Sport Trust (YST). These links ensure that our trainees are at the forefront of current and cutting edge practice and pedagogy in physical education. All are familiar with using ICT to support learning and understand how literacy and numeracy can be incorporated into lessons.
  • All trainees gain experience in a second subject area and where possible this is either a core subject or an EBacc subject. This enables them to teach a second subject at key stage three.
  • All trainees exit the course with qualified teacher status (QTS) and a post graduate certificate in education (PGCE). Our PGCE is offered through Northumbria University, another outstanding initial teacher training provider, and enables the trainees to gain 60 Masters credits.


  • If you have a job vacancy you can advertise directly through us for no charge by contacting the Programme Leader, Helen Ostell on or 0191 2961432 or 07786387467.
  • Alternatively, provide us with details about your advert and we will notify our trainees.
