We are excited to announce you can now train to teach with the Fylde SCITT in Liverpool in our three Northern Schools Trust Schools!

Fylde SCITT is an outstanding SCITT. In its most recent inspection it was awarded Outstanding in ALL Areas.

“The pastoral support of trainee teachers and the wrap-around, bespoke care of NQTs are the unique selling points of this provider. This is why outcomes for trainees are so strong.”

Why choose to train with Fylde SCITT?


our programme is completely personalised to each candidate; no two people have the same experience because we only train between 20 and 25 each year. Unlike the big university models where you would be one of 200 trainee teachers, we tailor the year to maximise your skills and you will therefore be better prepared to teach. We have our own supportive SCITT community, our own wellbeing programme and our own life coach.


because our trainees don’t have to attend University lectures, we have time to give them a bespoke enhancement programme running alongside the mainstream school placements. Our trainees teach in primary schools, pupil referral units, Special Educational Needs settings, work with CAHMS and teach in Sixth Forms. They also spend time at our local private schools to teach children with English as an additional language. Again, trainee curriculum design is tailored to maximise preparation.


our programme is competitively priced because we know graduates are already carrying huge university debts. We charge less than £8000 for QTS, as opposed to £9000, but we also give a free qualification for secondary trainees in addition to QTS so they leave as qualified Teachers of the PSHE Association [Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education]. This gives them an edge over other candidates when applying for jobs, and fully prepares them for teaching beyond the curriculum and preparing their pupils for life in modern Britain.
