Chiltern Training Group

At the heart of teacher training

Chiltern Training Group is a well established school centred initial teacher training (SCITT) provider based at Challney High School for Boys in Luton. A full range of PGCE curriculum subjects are offered across the 11-16 age group. We believe the best place to train teachers effectively in the highly complex art of teaching, is in schools.

Why train with us ?

CTG has a long heritage of training teachers and are pioneers of school centred initial teacher training.
Our training programmes have been judged by Ofsted as ‘Outstanding’ on two consecutive occasions and graded 1 across all areas in February 2014.
We give personalised training with strong support from experienced mentors.

Our NQT’s are ahead of expectations for the early stage of a teaching career.

New Route - Primary

We are delighted to be able to offer a new route for those wishing to train to teach in the Primary sector (age range 5-11).  Our expertise of running a SCITT, coupled with the outstanding primary practice of the Acorn Teaching School, provides an exciting opportunity for potential primary teachers based around the M1 corridor to train locally.
