If you have ever considered a career in primary teaching, the part-time primary teacher training course run by Nottinghamshire Torch SCITT could be the perfect opportunity for you. This course is designed for individuals who want to gain the necessary skills and qualifications to become a qualified teacher, but who are not able to commit to full-time study.


The course runs from September 2023 to April 2025. During the first year, participants spend two days a week in school and one day per week attending core training sessions. This format provides a balance between practical experience in the classroom and the theoretical knowledge necessary to be an effective teacher.

During the second phase of the course, which runs from September 2024 to April 2025, participants will spend three days per week in school, allowing for even more hands-on experience in a real classroom setting. Throughout the course, participants will work towards achieving Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from Sheffield Hallam University. The University training will take place at the SCITT Training Centre.


The Nottinghamshire Torch SCITT is a well-established and highly respected provider of teacher training. It has been delivering high-quality training since 2015 and has an excellent reputation for producing skilled and knowledgeable teachers who are able to make a positive impact on the lives of their students.

It is also an ideal option for career changers who want to transition into teaching without having to leave their current job.


As a participant on the course, you will benefit from the support of experienced mentors and tutors who will guide you through the training process. You will also have access to a wide range of resources and support services to help you make the most of your training and achieve your goals.
