About Endeavour Primary SCITT 

The programme consists of school-centred training from the beginning of September through to the end of June. Four days per week are spent in school observing, team planning and teaching, leading to solo teaching and one day per week is spent in a teaching and learning conference day which will usually be held at Tarleton Academy. The majority of the conferences will focus on planning for learning and teaching and provide you with the knowledge, skills and understanding so that you are able to be a highly effective teacher. Other conferences will have an academic focus where you will work with staff from Liverpool John Moores University to develop Masters Level 7 work.


You will have 2 equal placements in two contrasting schools. In addition, there will be other opportunities which will include: 

  • A secondary school
  • A SEND school 
  • A challenging school and early years or sixth form experience


We require a degree in a relevant subject (If a Third class, at least 60 credits need to be evidenced at Level 6) GCSE GradeC/4 in English Language, Mathematics and Science. Normally Grade B at A level in relevant subject or standard equivalent. In addition, all teachers are expected to be competent in Fundamental English and Mathematics. By the end of ITT all trainees must be able to demonstrate competence in communicating effectively in accurate and appropriate written and spoken English and use mathematical concepts and calculations accurately and effectively.

You will be expected to have well thought out ideas on why you wish to enter teaching and, in addition, to show an awareness of the work of the contemporary primary school. In addition, you will have a genuine passion for teaching and have thought about how you can best convey this passion to young people.

Before starting the training programme, all trainees will be required to undergo an enhanced criminal record check (DBS) check. All candidates will have to produce GCSE, A Level and Degree certificates in support of their application.
