Über uns

The OTT SCITT is an accredited provider of School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT). Since 2013 we have trained hundreds of Early Career Teachers (ECTs) who have gone on to employment in local schools in Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, Berkshire and beyond. In May 2023 we were graded Outstanding in all areas in our second Ofsted ITT inspection, having previously had an Outstanding report in 2017, and we are so pleased to see that the report reflects our commitment, ethos and passion for education and improving young people’s lives.
We offer a wide range of high quality courses across nursery, primary, special and secondary education, which suit applicants of all backgrounds and circumstances. Our programmes all lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) – the professional qualification- and our Associate Teachers (trainees) also have the option to add a master’s level Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) to their programme.
OTT SCITT’s central offices are based at The Cherwell School in Oxford, and this is where the majority of our Central Team is based for much of the week, but we operate our courses from a number of Hub locations around Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and Berkshire. Applicants to our courses can choose the Hub (study site) which is closest to them, this means that you can access the Central and Subject Curriculum sessions in a location near to you and enjoy training locally, with a combination of in-person, online and in-school training.
