With the support of experienced teachers, you will develop a deeper understanding of your subject knowledge and techniques to help pupils discover more about Chemistry as an intriguing and complex subject that deepens a pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the world around us: the elements, atoms, molecules and chemical reactions. 

Through Chemistry, pupils will also be able to build on developing their practical, analytical, creative, evaluative and problem-solving skills, which are universally advantageous.  The support of your Lead Tutor will help you to teach Chemistry in ways that will allow young people to utilise their natural curiosity for the world they live in and apply it to Science.

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

The Science SCITT course with Chemistry 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 Chemistry which will help spark pupils’ learning. If you have these skills, this programme is a fantastic opportunity for you.

The best way to train to be a teacher!
