Five Local Areas Mastering Education
"Begin your teaching journey with our unique programme, supported by experienced teacher educators delivering specialised training"
We are The OAKS (Ormiston and Keele SCITT), based at Keele University in Newcastle-under-Lyme, North Staffordshire.
Our School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) programme is delivered by Partnership school subject experts and experienced teacher educators.
Ours is an innovative and intensive one year course during which trainees will complete both the Teaching Standards, gaining QTS certification and obtain a Keele University PGCE at either Level 6 or 7.
In the recent Ofsted inspection, we were graded as an Outstanding Provider across areas.
We believe that we provide a course that is both supportive and enjoyable, with outstanding success rates (see below) well above the national average for the Initial Teacher Training sector.
