Our teacher training centre is based in the heart of the South West in the historic city of Exeter. We work alongside our partner schools, course tutors and mentors to provide our trainees with all the skills, understanding and experience they need to become brilliant teachers ready to make their impact on the education of the next generation. Training teachers in both Secondary and Primary, with our School Direct Partners, allows us to offer a unique perspective on children’s development and progress. SWTT SCITT was formed in 1993 with the remit of providing high calibre teachers for Exeter and South West Schools. We pride ourselves in continuing with this challenge, but also with producing teachers who teach across the country. One of the great strengths of SWTT is our ability to personalise the QTS programme, to provide one to one support and challenge for each of our trainees. 

This is a one-year full time course with training based entirely within a partnership of successful Exeter, Devon and other South West Schools. Our lead link is the Ted Wragg Multi-Academy Trust who are proud to work in partnership with schools across Exeter and Devon to provide a truly school-centred route into teaching.

The major benefit of this route is that the Trainee Teacher has the opportunity, right from the start, to join an effective school as part of a professional team. This will involve the trainee in all aspects of a teacher’s role in school and ensure that the Trainee Teacher is well prepared to join the teaching profession.
