About The Sheffield SCITT
The Sheffield SCITT is owned and run by Notre Dame High School, Sheffield. Notre Dame has been judged ‘Outstanding in all areas’ by OFSTED and The Sheffield SCITT was recently judged ‘Good’ by OFSTED for the quality of its teacher training.
Our partnership schools all see The Sheffield SCITT as the best way to find and develop their own future teachers. The Sheffield SCITT aims to supply most of the Newly Qualified Teacher needs of our partnership of schools. Whilst we cannot guarantee jobs for all trainees at the end of the course, the vast majority of trainees secure jobs within our partnership.
We remain small enough to know every trainee as an individual and give every partner school a voice in the running of the SCITT, but large enough to offer our trainees a diverse and bespoke experience of a different schools within the partnership - including Academies, Maintained Community Schools, Church Schools, those in multicultural inner cities, secondary schools with large sixth forms and primary schools with Early Years Centres.
We are currently recruiting candidates for our two Internship programmes:

ITT The School Centred Way
During your training you build up the skills you will need over the course of a year. We believe that by giving you small manageable chunks of information then giving you the opportunity to try out your new skills, will you help you to remember and help you progress over time. Teaching is a craft and it does take time to build up the different elements and skills that make great teachers. Through immersing you into the classroom from the beginning we believe you will be better equipped to deal with different situations as they arise. Learning everyday as you experience something new.
Your training will be based in the classroom at your placement school. On Wednesday you will attend the Hub day Notre Dame high School . There you will learn new teaching techniques in the morning. In the afternoon you will spend time with a subject specialist tutor who will help support you with the new curriculum demands and support you with subject knowledge.
