We are currently recruiting for the following Secondary Subjects: Application open NOW for September 2022-23. 


Our Secondary Training Route Programme runs for one academic year on a full time basis.


The programme is designed so that trainees spend four days of the week in their host school, with the final day of the week at the NMITTP base for their Professional Studies sessions.


Every trainee will be assigned a mentor at their host school, who will meet with them weekly, conduct observations, give feedback and support their progress towards becoming an effective practitioner.


During Term 2, trainees will complete a six week second placement in a contrasting school setting.

additional Qualification: PGCE (SCITT)

Included in the fees for our Secondary Training Route Programme, trainees complete an online PGCE (SCITT) with Leeds Beckett University. This Level 7 qualification is the equivalent to a third of a Master’s Degree and these credits can be used to gain a full Master’s Degree.  Trainees will complete assignments which are based around their own experiences within the classroom and will develop their reflective skills and improve teaching and learning.

Additionally, there is a QTS-only option for the training route at a reduced cost. 


Training route trainees will be required to pay a tuition fee of £9,000 for the programme.  This covers the cost of the PGCE (SCITT).  Trainees are also eligible to apply for student finance and to receive a bursary or a scholarship. For more information, please click here
