Get Into Teaching - Ash Field School Direct (ITT)

Why Teach in a Special School?

Ash Field Academy offers Non-Salaried School Direct places for both

Early Primary and Primary, as well as Secondary English.


Working alongside the Leicester and Leicestershire SCITT and the Leicestershire Secondary SCITT 

Ash Field School Direct is an option for those with a particular interest in exploring an SEN Route as part of their Initial Teacher Training.


School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) is a school based teacher training programme which, upon completion, successful trainees are awarded both a PGCE and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). 


Ash Field School Direct trainees receive all the benefits of being enrolled on a core SCITT programme, the differences being that the majority of the teaching placements are provided by Ash Field Teaching Alliance schools. There is also an assurance of placements within in a Special School setting. Therefore allowing the trainee to explore the SEN Route in more detail.
