We are looking for applicants who are suited to the teaching profession both academically and personally. We actively welcome application from mature students, valuing their experience of life and of the world of work, as well as applicants straight from their first degrees. The minimum academic qualifications required for the Initial Training Programmes at North Wiltshire SCITT are:
A UK honours degree preferably with a 2:2 classification or higher which typically should be at least 50% match to the subject in which you wish to train (or a recognised equivalent qualification). Grade C or above in GCSE English Language and Maths (or equivalent). MFL candidates will be required to train across two languages and all MFL applicants must hold a degree in the language they wish to teach as well as holding an A level at Grade C or above in a second curriculum language. Consideration will also be given to candidates with a GCSE as well as native speakers. Social Science applicants will be expected to have a second subject with the ability to teach at KS4 and KS5.
A UK honours degree preferably with a 2:2 classification or higher in a subject taught within the National Curriculum of England and Wales (or a recognised equivalent qualification). Grade C or above in GCSE English Language, Mathematics and Science (or equivalent).
We have an authorised arrangement with Equivalency Testing who can arrange the equivalency testing for you. You can contact Bridget on 01277 203336 or at www.equivalencytesting.com.
These must be checked for comparability by the National Academic Recognition Information Centre (NARIC) - www.naric.org.uk.
All candidates will be required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check to verify their suitability for working with young people.
All candidates will be required to complete Skills Tests in Numeracy and Literacy prior to starting the programme. This is a legal requirement. Tests can be taken at Learn Direct Centres. The first attempt is free and candidates can pay for two further attempts per subjects if necessary. Should you fail three times you are unable to retake the tests for 24 months and are therefore prohibited from taking up a place on an ITT course during this time.
