SCITTs and School Direct

Employment-based training.

Training is provided in the school and you will be expected to take on a daily timetable from the start. Time each week will be allocated for training and gaining QTS. Some courses provide PGCEs.


SCITTs are School-Centred Initial Teacher Training providers. For Classis / Latin, there are a few providers each year, but they are dependent on local need.

Two SCITTs which regularly provide training for Classics / Latin are King Edward’s Consortium (based in Birmingham) and Harris Academies ITT (based in London).

For details of the KEC course, see here. Note that KEC provides QTS and a PGDipEd (not a PGCE). 2-4 trainees per year.

For details of the Harris ITT course, see here. Harris provides QTS and a PGCE validated by Goldsmiths University. 4-6 trainees per year.


School Direct is a form of training where an individual school works in partnership with a validating university. You may be the only Classics teacher on the course and share training with teachers of other subjects. Details change from year to year, so keep up to date with positions advertised through the UCAS teacher Training website.

Numbers vary.
