University of Buckingham

EAST SCITT has formed a partnership with University of Buckingham, in order to support the delivery of and accredit the PGCE element for our programmes. The university has been successfully training teachers through their own programmes since 2002. In the last few years, they have formed collaborative partnerships with SCITTs, such as ours, to award the PGCE to compliment the QTS award for teacher training.
