2017 entry information

From September 2017, the University of Leeds will no longer offer University-led or School Direct PGCE routes into teaching.

We will continue to work with our SCITT (School-Centred Initial Teacher Training) provider partners. Through this route, the SCITT provider will train and award you with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Our SCITT partners will also register you on our University of Leeds SCITT PGCE programme, which awards 60 credits at Masters level.

Our SCITT partner, Red Kite Teacher Training, offers a wide range of subjects across Primary and Secondary and are based around Leeds and Harrogate. Applications will be made via UCAS directly to the SCITT provider. Find out more about our SCITT PGCE. 



  • 3-7 and 7-11


The SCITT route offers the same PGCEs as University-led and School Direct plus several other subjects, including:

  • Drama
  • Music
  • Religious Education
  • Physical Education
