“I found selecting my training course challenging because there are different routes into teaching and many different providers. Even at the interview stage, I felt that the Hampshire LEARN SCITT Partnership was the best choice for me. The selection process was clearly designed to look for my potential as a trainee teacher; the course has nurtured me and enabled me to develop that potential. The training is outstanding because it is structured to equip me with the skills I need to become a teacher whilst supporting me as an individual.”

Graded ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in November 2016
As a provider we are delighted to advise that we were graded OUTSTANDING by Ofsted in November 2016: “This is outstanding provision. At every level and in every way, highly effective leaders have created a teacher training programme which regularly produces extremely proficient teachers”.
Experience and expertise
LEARN is a large Teaching School Alliance in Hampshire. As a SCITT, we have the experience and capacity to deliver outstanding training and we feel privileged to be supporting the next generations of outstanding teachers. We are in partnership with the University of Winchester which has an excellent track record of initial teacher training.
Our training package
We have created a training package which is tailored to maximise the strengths of both school and university training. From the very start of your training, you will be part of the teaching team in your school. Your programme will include training days across a number of schools in the Hampshire LEARN SCITT Partnership, training in your own school, subject specialist days led by outstanding practitioners and personalised training. Expert support by experienced mentors and tutors will help you to develop and refine your teaching skills.
Across our alliance, we work with some of the best schools in Hampshire. You will be training with knowledgeable and enthusiastic teachers, committed to education, and leaders in their own fields.
If you complete the course successfully, you will be awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) at Masters level.
We are committed to training the best teachers – for Hampshire as well as nationally. Our recruitment is based on our potential to employ teachers in our partner schools and each year a significant number of our trainees gain jobs with us. Obviously not everyone chooses to stay in Hampshire and last year some of our trainees gained jobs in London, Surrey and Wiltshire.
Please check our Employment page for details of current teaching vacancies within our Alliance schools.
Continuing Professional Development
LEARN as a Teaching School trains teachers at all stages of their career. Through our NQT programme we support trainees who gain jobs in our partner schools in their first years of teaching and we continue to offer support in their development as outstanding practitioners for as long as they teach in our alliance schools. This includes middle leadership and senior leadership training.
Training is offered in both primary and secondary settings.
