The Careers and Employability team run the Lincoln Award Teacher Training scheme. There are 2 cohorts throughout the year; one in partnership with the Lincolnshire Teaching School Alliance and one with the St George’s SCITT Partnership.

We are currently recruiting for the Lincoln Award Teacher Training Scheme in partnership with St George’s SCITT Partnership. Applications for this cohort are for secondary teaching only (there are no places available at primary schools on this scheme). There are up to 10 places available.
