We operate across four learning hubs: Durham, North Yorkshire, Darlington and Teesside, Weardale and Teesdale. You would apply to join our course through UCAS and choose the course option nearest to you, or apply for the general High Force SCITT option and we'll discuss which of the four hubs would be best for you; we're here for you every step of the way...

The Durham Learning Hub is based within Etherley Lane Primary School, just outside of Bishop Auckland; the North Yorkshire Learning hub is attached to Brompton on Swale Church of England Primary School- where the Swaledale Alliance is based; the Weardale and Teesdale Learning Hub is based within Green Lane Church of England Primary School in Barnard Castle; finally the Darlington and Teesside Hub operates as a partnership between Sedgefield Hardwick Primary and the Abbey Federation in Darlington. In addition to this, there are our satellite partnership schools operating in the hub regions that you would carry out your placements in. With the range of schools we have in the High Force partnership we aim to place you as close to home as possible.

The course is full time and is in line with a school year from September-July (42 weeks). On successful completion of the course you would be awarded the PGCE with QTS along with 60 masters credits.
