Catalyst: Innovation for Education SCITT
Catalyst SCITT is a school led provider of Initial Teacher Education. Your training with us will take place in the best schools, with fantastic students and support that is second to none.
Who We Are
Catalyst is the Bishop’s Stortford Teaching School Alliance; a collaborative partnership of schools. We are based in Bishop’s Stortford and surrounding areas, including parts of Essex and Hertfordshire.
What We Do
Catalyst SCITT provides School Centred Initial Teacher Training within our family of schools. Our aim is to spot and nurture the outstanding teachers of the future, giving them the best possible training and support in their early career.
We offer training to graduates who want to train to teach in secondary school subjects and offer a range of qualifications options: Salaried or Fee-paying, PGCE or QTS. We also offer training during the first year of employment – the newly qualified teacher, probationary year.
Our training is led exclusively by serving practitioners in our family of schools; training takes place mainly in a school setting with some special training days in a university setting.
We would love to hear from you if you are interested in teacher training. If you are having your first thoughts about a teaching career, this might be for advice or a school visit. If you are already a determined applicant we can guide you through the UCAS process toward a potential interview. Jen, our SCITT administrator, is available via email or 01279 603104. She will happily answer your questions or put you in touch with the right person for more detailed advice.
We look forward to hearing from you.
