NMAP SCITT Granted Accreditation

Bolton School has been a Hub school for the National Mathematics and Physics (NMAP) SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) led by and based at Wycombe High School in Buckinghamshire since its inception several years ago.

We are now delighted to report that the NMAP SCITT has been successful in its application for accreditation for the delivery of Initial Teacher Training (ITT) from September 2024 onwards. We are one of only 80 ITT providers to have been successful in Round 1 of the accreditation process. This is a fantastic achievement and testament to the high quality of our provision and our partnership staff in Hub and placement schools across the country.

In December 2021, the Department for Education (DfE) published its response to the Initial Teacher Training (ITT) Market Review and asked all providers nationally to apply for accreditation to deliver ITT from September 2024.  The deadline for submitting applications in Round 1 was 7 February, with the option to apply in Round 2 in June. Most providers applied in Round 1, however only a third of applications have been successful.

Following the award, the NMAP SCITT will enter Stage 2 of the process, which is designed to be a supportive follow-up phase during which providers work with the DfE to further review training materials in a ‘light-touch quality assurance and triage process’.

Wycombe High School Deputy Headteacher and SCITT Lead Sally Jarrett said, ‘We are delighted with the outcome of our application and look forward to continuing to provide high quality, subject-specialist training for the next generation of mathematics and physics teachers’.
