About Us

Following the success its Ofsted Inspection in 2017 Altius Teacher Training expanded its range of subjects within the secondary provision and launched its first primary course in September 2019.

The aim of Altius within the Laurus Trust is to ensure that course participants learn from the best to be the best because children deserve nothing less. The Laurus Trust is committed to providing high quality Initial Teacher Training that serves the local and regional needs of teacher supply and to build its own teaching and leadership capacity.

Training at Altius means that you will gain the opportunity to hone your ‘practical teaching skills in an intellectually rigorous context.’ (Ofsted 2017)


The SCITT has an excellent reputation for producing NQTs who are confident and competent teachers.
