Courses on Offer for 2019-20

Train to teach with the Pimlico-London SCITT

We offer year-long primary and secondary training programmes for academics of all kinds to join the profession and raise the standard of teaching across the country. We welcome researchers completing their doctorates in education, unqualified teachers from the independent and public sector, career changers and recent graduates from the very best universities to join together to learn the knowledge and skills required to excel in the classroom.

Our ITT professional training programme has been designed to allow trainees the opportunity to take responsibility for a small number of their own classes from the start of the academic year, whilst receiving high-quality mentoring and training. As the year progresses, you will be given the opportunity to increase the number of classes you are responsible for. You will undergo a bespoke programme to meet your own individual needs.

All applications for our programmes should be submitted through UCAS, except if you are applying for our Assessment Only Route. Please see the details of that route here.

We have two provider codes: P58 and 1ZC.

Our courses for September 2019 entry are now closed.


Applications for September 2020 will open from the end of October on UCAS.
