Train in Peterborough, to Teach in Peterborough, to transform children’s lives

Teach East is Peterborough's School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) course, providing inspirational and effective training to the outstanding teachers of tomorrow.

  • 100% employment rates for trainees - we offer excellent guidance and support for finding the right school for you.
  • Hands on, practical training that can be used in the classroom straight away.
  • Access to the best trainers and training sessions in the city - learn from the best.
  • Personal and professional support throughout your training year, and into NQT.


Teach East is run by a team of dedicated senior leaders in Peterborough schools, all of whom still teach and lead in the city on a day to day basis. With the support of staff from a wide and diverse range of schools within the city, we have constructed a course that allows trainees to learn in high quality settings, watching and working with some of the best practitioners in Peterborough.

Peterborough is a great place to live, train and teach. It is one of the UK's fastest growing cities, with this growth comes opportunities. Peterborough's close network of schools are looking for passionate, innovative teachers to enhance the education of young people across the city. 

  • "The School Direct programme is a fantastic route into teaching; offering a wealth of knowledge and experience from a range of experts throughout the county. The selection of training is always current and relevant to my local area, which means applying it to my practice is a smooth transition. What's more, I have found the support from my mentor enormously beneficial; with this course you always have someone to catch you and guide you when things get tough."

  • "Teach East has opened the door to the most rewarding career imaginable. I’ve learnt so much in a year! Not only did the programme provide me with invaluable hands-on experience but it allowed me to work closely with teaching professionals who guided me constantly throughout the year."
