Initial Teacher Training in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole

We play a fundamental role in developing a self-sustaining system where new teachers learn from the best teachers, supported through a culture of coaching and mentoring.

Our School Direct partnership is with the Poole SCITT . We offer a PGCE in General Primary with SEND. We also work with a range of other local University and SCITT providers to augment their programmes with school based SEND experiences.

Are you interested in becoming a teacher through Primary PGCE with SEND as a specialism?

Applications for 2022-2023 will open in October .

Our PGCE in General Primary is significantly enhanced with aspects of Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND).

The programme content is delivered through four taught modules and a series of non-assessed and assessed school based placements. These placements are in both mainstream primary and special school settings.

Trainees are guided through their learning by experienced SCITT  and school based mentors, to enable them to gain the skills and confidence to become effective, successful teachers of primary aged children, especially those with SEND. The programme is designed for trainee teachers wishing to enter the profession in either mainstream or special school settings.

Trainees are based at Linwood School and in our partner schools  which include primary mainstream and other local special schools.
