From the Design and Technology ITT School Lead Tutor

Throughout the course, trainees are fully supported by the Lead Tutor for Design & Technology, a Link Tutor from Leeds SCITT and subject specialist mentors who are dedicated to training the very best teachers.  The Lead Tutor has been the subject leader at Titus Salt School and has recently taken on a whole school STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) role to highlight the importance of technology across the whole spectrum of education.


With a well equipped Design and Technology department, at Titus Salt School you will be supported by your Lead Tutor to thrive in your subject area.  Specialist teachers will support you to build a deep understanding of your subject knowledge and tools for developing pupils’ skills.  The course provides you with the opportunity to specialise in Product DesignFood Preparation and Nutrition or Textiles up to GCSE level. You will also have the opportunity to teach a second specialism at KS3 (ages 11-14).

In addition to your Lead School placement, you will be placed within up to two of our partnership schools to give you contrasting placements.
