The Alliance for Learning SCITT wrapped up another successful year putting some of the brightest and best new teachers through their paces with a Celebration Event to remember on 7th July.
37 trainee teachers threw their mortar boards in the air after successfully completing the 38 week initial teacher training programme and were recommended for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and PGCE.
QTS status will enable trainees to start their teaching career in September, with 96% of them having already accepted posts as Newly Qualified Teachers in primary and secondary schools which are part of the Alliance for Learning Teaching School and Bright Futures Educational Trust.
Kal Hodgson, SCITT Director, commented: “We are all extremely proud of this year’s graduates. Each one has proven over and over again that they are excellent teachers.”
“In partnership with our alliance of over 60 schools, colleges and universities across the region, our new graduates have had access to what we believe are some of the best teacher training experiences on offer and are leaving us with a strong and lasting foundation to build their teaching careers upon.”
Sarah Capel, trainee teacher, said: “I believe this is the best course on offer. It gives you the perfect amount of teaching time but also am adequate amount of thinking time to allow you to improve. I have flourished in this environment and would highly recommend it.”
Hilary Langmead-Jones, SCITT Manager, added: “The students have done incredibly well showing great perseverance and resilience, juggling the many commitments of family life, work and the demands of our programme. Congratulations to them all.”
