|About||The UK needs language teachers in its schools! That's why we were created. The only government approved, national teacher training course to focus on languages and to work across both state and independent schools.|
As a result of our success recruiting and training Modern Languages teachers through School Direct, we have worked with the Department for Education to establish a subject specific School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) provider for Modern Languages. Our SCITT represents a new partnership between the state and independent sector offering a wealth of experience and tremendous opportunities to train to teach in a wide range of contexts.
Our SCITT is part of Silverdale Trust which has, at its heart, Silverdale School, an outstanding school with language college status in South West Sheffield. Our learning community believe in the power of language to transform lives and to create life opportunities for all our children and all our school staff. Our passion for languages and language learning has led to the creation of a programme which will prepare all our trainees to teach languages in the state and independent sector. It is the aim of the SCITT to establish geographical hubs which will centre around a cluster of state and independent schools in a local area making it easier for trainees to find a location that suits their needs.
