At Sythwood Primary & Nursery School we believe that training our own teachers is a way of ensuring that our children consistently receive the highest quality of teaching and learning. We have many teachers who were trained through the SCITT programme and they are now a vital part of what makes our school such a fantastic place to work. If you have a desire to give children the best possible start in life, then please read the information below.

An Introduction to Surrey South Farnham SCITT (SSF)
A strength of school-led training is that you are learning in a school environment and treated as a member of the school team from day one. You will be surrounded by experienced colleagues and guided through a gradual integration into teaching a class of children. The programme will be tailored to meet your needs and you will be supported by a Mentor and Support Tutor. Weekly professional studies sessions are led by a team of national experts and primary educationalists.
School Direct programmes are an important element of government strategy for training new teachers. There continues to be a significant growth in the number of places allocated through School Direct and SSF intends to be at the forefront of this strategic direction for ITT, increasing the number of trainees we recruit on a year by year basis. There is a pressing need to recruit and train more teachers to meet the demand for NQTs in the coming years, particularly in the South East region.
