De Aston School in Market Rasen has joined a scheme that will see Lincolnshire grow its own teachers.

The school is one of 17 in the county taking part in the Lincolnshire Teaching School Alliance (LTSA) that will see graduates undergo School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT).

Working with Lincoln University, subjects include biology, chemistry and computing, with successful candidates gaining a Postgraduate Certificate in Education. They may also qualify for bursaries of up to £25,000 in some subjects.

De Aston school head Ellenor Beighton said: “Under the new SCITT scheme, trainee teachers will be embedded in our school. This means we can ensure that our highly qualified teachers and best tutors support our trainees on a daily basis as they develop the knowledge to become teachers of excellence. It is a great way to learn and qualify and become a teacher and many successful candidates will quickly progress into leadership positions.”
