Teacher Training Places

We are also part of the SCITT teacher training programme.  For more information please visit  

Applications for recruitment in both primary and secondary subjects can be made via UCAS.

Holmer Green Senior School partners with the Astra SCITT to offer secondary post-graduate training places in a range of subjects - see the Astra SCITT website for more information. 

During the training year, all trainees will have the opportunity to spend time in at least one other of the partnership schools to ensure a contrasting and comprehensive experience. The SCITT has considerable experience of training teachers and recognises and values the enthusiastic contribution that they make to our school communities. Staff at the training schools will share their knowledge and good practice to ensure that trainees are well supported to develop into good and outstanding teachers. The programme is structured to allow trainees to develop the skills required to teach the subject that they are training in and to develop specific expertise for making a distinctive contribution to practice in their setting.
