Interested in a career in teaching?
Whether you are at school or university and considering teaching as a career or are thinking about changing careers later on in life, teaching is an exciting and rewarding profession. No two days are the same, but every day is interesting, challenging and often entertaining. The children and young people we work with are endlessly curious, thought-provoking and inspiring, and being part of their community is real privilege.

GLOUCESTERSHIRE INITIAL TEACHER EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP GITEP
About GITEP SCITT
The Gloucestershire Initial Teacher Education Partnership was formed in 1997, works with partnership school across Gloucestershire, and is managed by a committee consisting of local school leaders and representatives from the University of Bristol. As a SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) training is heavily school based with trainees getting into schools right from the start of the academic year and joining their parent school in week 4 of the autumn term. All other subject and professional training takes places in Partnership Schools throughout the year, provided by local experts and practitioners.
GITEP offers the opportunity to achieve Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and complete the Post Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) through our partners at the University of Bristol. Trainees are entitled to the same financing (loans and bursaries) through a SCITT as through a university route. GITEP also offer an access fund of £2,000 to trainees not eligible for a bursary.
GITEP also offers a flexible route through training for those wishing to train part-time. This has been particularly useful for those with family or caring commitments or those wishing to continue part-time work as they train.
