About Us

The Alliance for Learning SCITTis a dynamic, high-quality teacher training provider offering a range of school-based routes into teaching in the Early Years, Primary and Secondary sectors.

The Alliance for Learning is made up of a partnership of over 80 schools, colleges and universities across Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Cheshire. The lead school is Altrincham Grammar School for Girls (outstanding), and we have a proven track record of providing outstanding teacher training for over 10 years.

We offer the following routes into teaching:

  • School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) in primary and secondary, both salaried and tuition fee route.
  • Graduate employment-based Early Years Teacher Status.

The Alliance for Learning SCITT aims to promote excellence in all aspects of education through focused, central and school-based training activities. Trainees are based in our partner schools for the duration of the programme.

We understand that today’s graduates want to make a difference, but they are also ambitious and keen to progress. That is why we provide a comprehensive training package not only during your initial teacher training year, but throughout your career to support you from NQT to middle leader, to senior leader to headship.

We value and respect your well-being and place a strong emphasis on coaching and developing talent, which is why we offer mindfulness and coaching courses to all our employees, and mental and physical first aid training to all our trainees. You will be supported and guided throughout your training year by highly qualified, experienced subject and professional mentors , led by dedicated secondary, primary and EY leads.

You will gain a PGCE (awarded by the University of Manchester) and QTS status or you will gain EYTS status.

Ofsted quotes:

“Employers of trainees comment very favourably on the significant improvements in trainees’ expertise and knowledge, brought about by their training”
Ofsted 2017

“Trainees have good opportunities to work in a range of diverse and contrasting schools. They also gain useful practical experience of the preceding and subsequent key stages to the age phase they are training to teach.”
Ofsted 2017
