Our primary School Direct SCITT programme is run by the Sussex Teacher Training Partnership, where trainees are taught by expert teachers and Specialist Leaders of Education.  Training is delivered in the classroom to bring learning to life and on completion trainees gain qualified teacher status (QTS). 

At the Sussex Teacher Training Partnership, every trainee matters. Our passion is to use evidence–based training to develop excellent teachers who will positively impact the lives of pupils across Sussex and beyond, empowering them to become educated global citizens. We provide an ambitious curriculum, which supports the embedding of expert knowledge alongside up-to-date pedagogical skills. We offer a bespoke programme which is rigorous in providing each trainee with the individualised support they need, recognising that this will not be the same for everyone. We are aspirational in our approach, challenging all trainees to have the highest expectations of themselves and their pupils. We strive to develop strong relationships with stakeholders, encouraging trainees to work collaboratively with expert practitioners across the partnership. Our shared aim, as the Sussex Teacher Training Partnership, is to fully equip our trainees to be inspirational educators in a long and successful teaching career.
