Future Teacher Training (formerly the Pimlico London SCITT) is an Ofsted outstanding School-Centred Initial Teacher Training provider in London and Hertfordshire. In a short space of time we have grown from our first cohort of nine trainees to span a wide variety of fifteen secondary subjects and an exciting primary programme.

We know that highly knowledgeable and skilled teachers make the biggest impact on pupil outcomes and we are committed to continuously developing teachers’ subject knowledge and pedagogy so that they can achieve the highest of aspirations for themselves and their pupils. Accordingly, this education also endows them with the freedom to choose, the freedom to question and the freedom to reason.

We believe in:

  • pitching our lessons high and carefully scaffolding to ensure that every student can access every lesson.
  • lessons that engage and challenge, delivered by research-informed and highly knowledgeable practitioners.
  • recruiting dynamic teachers with a passion for their subject, a love of learning and a desire to develop their own subject knowledge.

The select nature of our SCITT ensures that each trainee teacher receives a bespoke programme that leads to QTS alongside a PGCE designed to promote innovation and excellence in education. We are extremely proud of our excellent outcomes and almost perfect employment rates, and we maintain great links with our alumni, who keep us informed of their progress as they become the leaders of curriculum and pastoral education in their new schools.
