Personalised high-quality initial teacher training in Bradford

Our training providers

Exceed SCITT works closely with all its training providers to ensure all trainees receive an excellent training experience. We have training providers serving three main geographical areas Leeds, Bradford and Keighley. In addition Shanidar School Direct has some reach into Skipton. Whilst each training provider does have a base school we do like you to get out and about! That gives you a great opportunity to learn from the practice of a range of schools where you can see excellent provision. You will be allocated two schools where you will be able to put what you are learning into practice. We can tell you more during our free local briefing events.
