Find out more about the Leeds SCITT History course.

The History course has been running since 2013 with an outstanding success rate. Our trainees have all achieved employment within West Yorkshire, across the country and abroad, and many have gone on to become middle leaders within the first 2 years of their teaching career. Many of our past trainees are now mentors of our current and future trainees, contributing to their own professional development as teachers.

We train independent teachers who continue to develop excellent subject knowledge. Our trainees are taught how to develop pupils’ historical understanding such as significance, cause and consequence, change and continuity, chronological understanding, and source analysis through a wide variety of techniques and strategies.

Leeds SCITT aims to get trainees into the classroom quickly to learn with a ‘hands on’ approach and to become an experienced practitioner quickly.

We train History teachers who are inspirational and not afraid to take risks and try out new ideas.  If you can inspire, enthuse, challenge and encourage young people then we want to hear from you.

'The unbelievable support offered by Michelle and the SCITT team. The hands on experience, and the SEB assessment. Although at the time I couldn’t see it, since beginning my teaching profession, there has not been a challenge I have faced that I was not prepared for through the SEB.'
