Welcome to the Tommy Flowers SCITT teacher training partnership.

Graded an ‘outstanding’ provider of primary and secondary teacher training in Milton Keynes by Ofsted in December 2017, the Tommy Flowers SCITT is pleased to share with you our exemplary training programmes and superb outcomes.

Working in partnership with schools across Milton Keynes and the surrounding area, our teacher training programmes provide access to outstanding training, mentoring and pastoral care. We create varied experiences for our trainees that will set them up to be excellent teachers for the children of Milton Keynes. We aim to nurture trainees into exceptional teachers who develop positive attitudes to learning and behaviour in their pupils, have strong subject and professional knowledge and engage their classes with enthusiasm and energy. With a 100% employment rate following completion of the course, our Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs), ‘often exceed levels of performance expected at such an early stage of their career.’ (Ofsted 2017).

If you have a passion for teaching, are organised and hard-working, please explore our courses further and contact us to find out more about studying with the Tommy Flowers SCITT.

‘Trainees have already developed such purposeful teaching that pupils’ attitudes to learning and behaviour are remarkable. The level of engagement observed was ‘extraordinary.’

Routes into teaching

Schools need their teachers to have a range of experiences and skills. That’s why trainees on the Tommy Flowers SCITT come from varied backgrounds and pathways. Some will have gone to university immediately after school and know that they want to train to teach upon graduation. Others have taken a different journey and have been employed in other careers before choosing to teach.
