A little something About us

SCITTELS stands for School Centred Initial Teacher Training In East London Schools. We are a consortium of schools within East London who work in close partnership to provide outstanding initial teacher training, leading to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). 

The consortium has a strong commitment to Equal Opportunities and takes its responsibility to promote this with the utmost importance. Inclusion is a key feature and strength of our programmes and we are committed to training teachers who will value and build on the linguistic, religious and cultural diversity that children in East London communities bring to school and who in turn, will prepare all children for life in a diverse society.

We are incredibly proud that we have been twice graded as Outstanding by OFSTED who described SCITTELS as providing ‘the best possible training’.
