About Us

About Us

Hamwic SCITT is an accredited provider of initial teacher training based in Southampton. We are part of Hamwic Education Trust, one of the largest multi-academy trusts in the south of England responsible for more than 30 primary and secondary schools across Hampshire and Dorset.

This structure means we have the established capability to fully prepare you for a successful teaching career. We are large enough to ensure you benefit from the latest pedagogical expertise but small enough to care – providing personalised support and lifelong learning.

Hamwic SCITT’s Primary QTS with PGCE training programme offers you the opportunity to train to become a teacher while working in the classroom and be part of an established teaching team in one of our Partnership Schools.

Alongside this practical school-centred training you will engage in research-based enquiry through your PGCE with Bath Spa University.

We have a strong track record for satisfaction and employability. 100% of our trainees said that they would recommend us to others and 100% over the past two years had jobs when they completed the programme.
