We work with Plymouth University to offer an ITT programme that gives trainees the opportunity to gain their PGCE as well as QTS. Plymouth University will award the PGCE and the Peninsula SCITT programme structure includes sessions led by Plymouth University tutors which will take place almost entirely within Cornwall with the occasional conference, lecture or study day on campus at Plymouth University. Trainees of Peninsula SCITT are granted access to the study facilities and student services of Plymouth University enabling them to use the library on campus as well as Plymouth’s on line resources to help with PGCE assignment writing and research.
We can not yet confirm placements available for 2017-18 but the following schools have provided Main School Placements, Second School Placements or both for our trainees in the past.
