Teacher training

As a partner with the Red Kite Alliance, Lawnswood School supports an excellent school-led pathway to train new teachers through Red Kite Teacher Training.

Red Kite Teacher Training offers excellent School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) programmes for both Primary and Secondary prospective teachers. In partnership with other schools in the Leeds, Harrogate and surrounding areas, our 1 year course leads to QTS* and PGCE.

Why train with Red Kite?

  • A dedicated team of experienced mentors, tutors and subject leaders to fully support you throughout the year,
  • The opportunity to train among a nationally recognised partnership of schools and fantastic employment opportunities in our schools after training,
  •  Full access to facilities at the University of Leeds including their library, sports facilities, support staff and a student card,
  • A tax-free bursary up to £28,000 available for certain subject areas.
