We have recently joined forces with education recruitment specialist Vision for Education, to help prepare students for the world of teaching. Vision for Education will support trainees to secure a permanent role once they have graduated. Experienced recruitment consultants will provide trainees with useful job search and application advice and help with personal statement writing and interview techniques. Trainees will also be able to access free training courses through Vision for Education’s continuing development (CPD) programme for teaching staff, to help enhance their skills and keep them up-to-date with the latest developments in education. Vision for Education specialise in providing temporary and permanent teaching and support staff for primary, secondary and SEND (special education needs and disabilities) schools. They have fifteen branches across the UK and are part of TES – the global digital education company committed to supporting teaching and learning.


Association Physical Education Logo


We work closely with the Association for Physical Education (afPE) to ensure that programme staff and trainees are at the forefront of current and cutting-edge practice in physical education. An afPE representative sits on the SCITT Management Committee. The editor of Physical Education Matters’, the afPE journal, supports trainees with their academic writing and to publish their work in the journal if they wish.


Youth Sport Trust Logo


We have strong links with the Youth Sport Trust (YST).   A number of partnership schools are members of the YST and have the YST Partner Mark. A YST representative sits on the SCITT Management Committee. Some trainees have had their work published on the YST website and in YST publications.



We are working strategically and in partnership with North Yorkshire County Council who leads on the North Yorkshire Coast DFE Opportunity Area teacher recruitment project across Whitby, Scarborough and Filey.

The North Yorkshire Opportunity Area  is prioritising improvements to education and numeracy and literacy outcomes, alongside a drive to recruit and retain high-quality, motivated teachers to the area. Teachers on the North Yorkshire Coast will have unique opportunities to engage in additional professional and leadership development through this programme, as well as access to fully-funded national professional qualifications. To date, 3 teachers have been placed, from the North East SCITT programme, in schools across the coast who started in their posts in September 2018.



We are working strategically and in partnership with the Three Rivers Teaching School Alliance. The Three Rivers Teaching School Alliance is led by The King Edward VI School, Morpeth. It is an outstanding school and has a longstanding reputation for academic excellence and continues to be a central part of the local and regional community. If you would like to train in Primary or Secondary education, please get in touch at

We are now working in partnership with Servoca Education who specialise in recruiting NQTs into permanent jobs across London. Established in 2010, Servoca Education have gradually built excellent relationships with primary and secondary schools across every part of London. This has helped them to become a leading recruiting agency in the Capital with an excellent reputation of helping students find their first teaching job. Servoca Education arranges formal interviews in reputable schools and hosts events in their London based office. These events enable students to meet with more than one Headteacher informally on one day so the students get a chance to see their options before committing to a formal interview. These events are fee of charge and Servoca Education will also reimburse travel costs.


I would highly recommend the North East Partnership SCITT to anyone wanting to pursue a career in teaching. The course allows for a true school experience while equipping you with a variety of masterclasses in teaching and learning. The support received from the SCITT team is outstanding and guaranteed to help you secure a teaching post.

Leeann Irving

My experience of the North East Partnership SCITT has enabled me to become the confident teacher I am today. The support you receive from your tutors helps to develop your planning, content and structure of lessons and how to effectively manage your class. This gives you the belief in your ability as teacher when you start your first teaching post.

Liam Blythe

I had a fantastic experience on both teaching placements, with really supportive staff. I had the opportunity to teach in very contrasting schools and across the full curriculum, including examination PE at Key Stage 4 and 5. The course gave me an excellent start for a career in teaching and has allowed me to progress into promotional opportunities

Ian Middleton

Having been a trainee and then a school based tutor on the course, it is my belief that NEP SCITT is the best teacher training provider around. The course consists of high quality training which focuses on the practical and theoretical aspects of being a physical education teacher, delivered by the best practitioners and schools in the area. Trainees are then able to develop their practice in a variety of school placements, with a strong support network of physical education teachers on hand to offer guidance and support.

Aaron White

It was a genuine privilege to train through the North East Partnership SCITT. The mix of theory and hands on teaching allowed me to develop into a reflective practitioner. An absolutely fantastic course ran by dedicated professionals.

Andrew Archibald

NEP SCITT equipped me with the necessary qualities and skills to become a successful teacher. Courses and CPD events allowed me to develop a greater understanding of monitoring and measuring progress of different ability students.

Jade Murray

After completing my PGCE and entering my first teaching job I realised the SCITT programme had set me up fantastically well. Halfway through the course I sat my first interview and got my first job. This wouldn’t have been possible without the excellent support or amazing network of people who are involved in the programme. Couldn’t recommend it enough!
