"Begin you teaching journey with our unique programme, supported by experienced teacher educators delivering high quality, specialised training"
We are The OAKS (Ormiston and Keele SCITT), an Ofsted Outstanding Secondary Initial Teacher Training provider based at Keele University in Newcastle-under-Lyme, North Staffordshire.
Ours is an innovative and intensive one year course during which trainees will complete both the Teaching Standards, gaining QTS certification and obtain a Keele University PGCE academic award at either level 6 or 7.
We believe that we provide a course that is both supportive and enjoyable, with Outstanding success rates (see below) well above the national average for the Initial Teacher Training sector.
