GITEP is a unique collaboration between all the secondary schools in Gloucestershire and the University of Gloucestershire. GITEP offers PGCE, QTS, School Direct and School Direct Salaried routes into teaching.
The GITEP programme is designed to recruit, train and retain the best teachers for our partnership schools. Almost 100 trainees completed the programme last year and all are employed in schools, well over half within our partnership. Employment and completion rates are both well above the national average.
Trainees on all routes spend most of their time in schools and the majority of trainers are serving teachers. Partner schools include some of the highest performing schools in the country, selective schools, comprehensive schools, single sex schools, large urban schools and small rural schools.
