Job success

Poole SCITT has a long record of job success in the local area.

99% of our 2017-18, 2016-17 and 2015-16 trainees secured jobs immediately after graduating. Our employment status numbers are always well above the national sector figures.

DMS1742Z-1 The training by Poole SCITT is highly valued by schools in the Poole, Bournemouth and Dorset area and many trainees secure jobs in the local area at the end of their training.

Head teachers highlight the value of Poole SCITT as creating teachers who are academically sound, hugely reflective and professional and who have benefitted from their placement experiences across two key stages in three different schools.

During the SCITT year, there are many ways that trainees are prepared for entering the job market. Advice and guidance is given by heads and governors on selecting the right school, writing personal statements and developing interview techniques at practice interviews.

Trainees who apply for vacancies in partner schools are almost always among those chosen for interview and the employment success rate in the local area is very high. Other trainees search for work around the country and are just as successful as those applying to local schools, although some find it hard to move away from tempting local job offers.

Many past SCITT trainees have by now reached senior management positions in the local area proving that the journey begins with the training but that career development is limitless. Even more are working with Poole SCITT as School Based tutors and contributing to the course in other ways by providing a very loyal and supportive network in the area.


“ Consistently high completion and employment rates for all trainees.”


“Poole SCITT students stand out at interview and in the role. They are talented, professional and enthusiastic. Perfect for teaching today.”


 “The test of an excellent SCITT is whether the schools involved are interested in employing the trainees. The answer for Poole SCITT is a resounding yes!”


“Our school aims for a balance of teachers with different training experiences but would always consider a SCITT student especially from recommendation and successful placements with us.”

School Based Mentor

“In the past three years all trainees have been successful in securing a teaching post by the end of the course.”
