Leicester and Leicestershire SCITT

The Merton School is the lead school for the SCITT School Direct route that provides trainees with invaluable classroom experiences to equip them with the skills and knowledge to become effective and confident primary teachers.  Trainees applying to this School Direct route can expect one, and often two, of their three school placements to be within STEP Schools. All School Direct trainees on this route will benefit from following the full training programme of the SCITT. All school placements will be in partner schools of the SCITT.

For further details about this School Direct route please visit the following websites;
