Ormiston Academies Trust runs a School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) facility with Keele University called The OAKS. The OAKS is an Ofsted outstanding rated provider, serving as many non-OAT schools as it does OAT schools. As such it is one of the largest SCITT providers in the country.

All applications for PGCE/School Direct/School Direct Salaried must be made via an online application through UCAS Teacher Training.
