Manchester Nexus SCITT is committed to raising the achievement of young people in North Manchester area and beyond by producing great teachers.

Our mission is to train teachers who will inspire, challenge and support all of their pupils, both now and in the future. Nexus teachers are committed to ensuring every child succeeds, regardless of their background. Therefore, we select and develop trainees who show great potential and are as invested in the life chances of young people as we are. This means that you will be learning alongside trainees who have the same drive and ethos as you. It is important to us that our trainees have access to appropriate support, therefore, we strive to employ mentors and trainers with exceptional expertise and experience. We, alongside our mentors, will invest in you to ensure you fulfil your potential.

Our training fosters resilience with a balanced approach that recognises the importance of personal well-being amidst the demands of this great profession. With us, you get the best of both worlds: academic rigour and practical learning.

At Manchester Nexus SCITT we know about, care about, and value every single trainee. We are small enough to tailor your training programme to make sure it supports and develops you as an individual, so you can realise your potential and become a great teacher. You will receive lots of intensive support and training from experienced teachers and mentors right from the start, and throughout your course. The schools you are with will not ask you to teach classes unsupported until you both think you are ready. School-led courses have very high rates of employment and trainee satisfaction as no other training route offers as much school based experience. You learn from current practising teachers, in schools, so you develop skills and knowledge faster.
