Primary Programmes

The Primary course with The South Downs SCITT will prepare you to teach the 5 to 11 age range. This course offers a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from The University of Chichester as well as Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

The course is full time for 1 year and starts in September. You will undertake two placements in schools and train to teach in 2 consecutive Key Stages (1 and 2).

There will be complementary 3 day placements in a special school and in Early Years/Reception and Key Stage 3.

Training with the SCITT will be on Fridays and you will be in your school Mondays to Thursdays. You will be supported throughout your placement by our Primary Tutor both at the SCITT and in your schools.
