Leicester and Leicestershire SCITT teacher in action

Men into Primary Schools

The SCITT has an outstanding record in male trainees successfully gaining QTS and becoming very enthusiastic and effective teachers who love their job and are passionate about supporting the learning of pupils in both the Early Primary and Primary years.

Men are under-represented in primary schools, particularly in the Early Years. The SCITT is keen to support quality male applicants in exploring teaching. The SCITT can support interested applicants through:

  • providing opportunities  at open afternoons and evenings for potential applicants to meet current male teachers and trainees trained by  the SCITT and working in SCITT partnership schools;
  • providing opportunities for men wishing to explore teaching to gain experience in classrooms, across the full 3-11 yr  age range, often with male teachers.

Teaching in a primary school is a rewarding and challenging profession for men and women alike. If you are a man considering teaching in either the Early Primary or Primary years and would be interested in finding out more about what it feels like to work in primary schools from current male primary teachers or trainees, please email or phone the SCITT on (0116)2543187 for further details.
