We offer full time and part time teacher training programmes in Secondary Education starting each September.

We have two locations for your Professional Studies training:
Which subject will you choose to specialise in? We have a wide selection of secondary and A’ level subjects for you to choose from. Excellent subject knowledge and a passion for your subject are essential.
For your school placements, you will be based in two of our host schools within the secondary department that you are specialising in which allows you to experience high-quality teaching right from the beginning of the course. It is our belief that by investing in the next generation of teachers, we can secure the best outcomes for young people and, therefore, we seek to attract and train the highest calibre trainee teachers. You will be trained in an extremely supportive environment based in high-achieving, aspirational schools. Our Initial Teacher Training (ITT) programme provides the experience of training within schools from the start of September, together with high quality core and subject training delivered by expert practitioners, consistent with the requirements for meeting the Teachers’ Standards and gaining Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
Our Secondary Primary QTS and PGCE programmes are accredited by Birmingham City University who awards our Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE sixty Masters credits).
School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) is effective, challenging and rewarding. We provide a personal approach and treat each trainee as an individual, identifying their needs to ensure that they achieve an excellent outcome.

Why should trainee teachers or schools choose Haybridge Teaching Alliance? Hear from real people and their stories on how Haybridge Alliance SCITT has helped them in their teaching career.
I would recommend Haybridge Alliance SCITT 100% today, tomorrow and forever. This journey into becoming a teacher would not have been a success for me without their dedication. Every push and all feedback that came my way from the SCITT was essential to master the art of teaching. Haybridge Alliance SCITT has provided me with the most exceptional environment, which a trainee teacher needs to exceed.
Everyone has been really supportive, positive and reassuring. It has been good to be back at Haybridge – now as a trainee, rather than a student! The year has been very rewarding and engaging.
It has been full of content with lots of lessons to learn, but also truly inspiring and an excellent platform to start my teaching career. Thank you for all your help.
I would highly recommend Haybridge Alliance SCITT as a training provider. The support and encouragement has been immense, in particular from the SCITT team and teaching staff. The subject-specific mentors based at Haybridge have been incredible at imparting their knowledge and providing guidance and I am extremely grateful to them all!
I chose Haybridge Alliance SCITT because I wanted to gain hands-on experience in an outstanding school where I can learn how to teach. The programme is challenging but also very rewarding.
The Monday professional sessions are of high quality and were designed to complement the practical modules. I really feel more confident and passionate about becoming a teacher than ever before. The support of mentors and staff is phenomenal.
Teacher training is a very rewarding, but at times very difficult journey. The team at Haybridge Alliance SCITT understand that it can be difficult and have been very supportive at the times when the going has been tough and for this I would definitely recommend then. I’m glad I decided to go with Haybridge as I’ve had the opportunity to do a lot more teaching than I would if I’d picked [a university route].
Love, love, love this course! The support from the SCITT team is incredible, really outstanding. Learning to teach straight away and teaching almost immediately was such a benefit. The students only see you as their teacher and you can take it at your own pace.
I am so happy that I chose to go down the SCITT route as I have loved every minute of it and would recommend it to anyone looking to do a teaching course.
Training with Haybridge Alliance SCITT has been life changing. It has given me access to the very best advice, support and teaching practice to enable me to develop as both an individual and a teacher.
During my placements, both of my assigned mentors went above and beyond to make sure that my experience was as beneficial, yet at the same time challenging as possible. The knowledge and expertise shared by both the SCITT staff and the staff within placement schools has been invaluable and has undoubtedly helped me to develop on my journey to becoming a teacher.
So far, I have learnt a lot on this programme and I am really enjoying learning how to teach to the best of my ability. The support on the course has been exceptional. I know I can ask for advice on anything in school and I will get good guidance. Completing the Paid Mathematics and Physics Internship was a great experience for me. It gave me a month in the educational environment and really made my mind up that I wanted to go into teaching. Without completing that, I feel I would not have enrolled on this course.
