Initial Teacher Training (SCITT)
At Bensham Grove Nursery we are actively involved with the Gateshead 3-7 SCITT. This is an initial teacher training course which is based at Lobley Hill Primary School.
Trainee teachers are generally based at our nursery for around 7 weeks at a time at specific points in the year and they gain valuable work experience with us. In a report published in January, OFSTED graded the course as ‘Outstanding’ in all areas.
