With the support of experienced teachers, you will develop a deeper understanding of your subject knowledge and techniques to help pupils to discover more about the human body and the natural world.  Science not only offers unique opportunities that develop pupils’ science knowledge and understanding but it also develops their practical, analytical, creative, evaluative and problem-solving skills.  Learn to nurture young peoples’ natural curiosity about the world they live in and develop this to ensure all pupils achieve their very best.

Whilst you’ll focus on Biology, trainees will also have the opportunity to expand their teaching experience further within the subject of science, by leading Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 classes on Chemistry and Physics.  

The Science SCITT course with Biology is an ideal course for candidates that have the passion and enthusiasm needed to help shape young lives.  Candidates will need the drive and ambition to work with young people and have a love of Biology which will help spark pupils’ learning. If you have these skills, this programme is a fantastic opportunity for you.

I watched and listened to other teachers but was also allowed to develop my own unique teaching style”
