Working closely with three very different yet very successful teachers from three very different schools has been brilliant. We have been exposed to three different ways of approaching different things, and it is great to be able to share in subject-specific approaches to certain issues within the classroom.

Our course lead tutors have been so supportive both on the subject days and outside of this and I cannot thank them enough for their help and advice. They have introduced us to a plethora of information and advice that has really helped this year.

Training sessions have been invaluable with particular regard to securing a post, behavioural management and the consistent and excellent support from the mentors at Ripley.

The lead tutor has been fantastic for our sessions in Maths, I cannot speak highly enough of the way he conducts the sessions. They are incredibly engaging and planned brilliantly. The sessions have been brilliant in helping me to plan in for common misconceptions in the “trickier” topic areas. The subject session days have been something I have looked forward to all year.

My placement school has been very welcoming and I've really felt a part of the team. It's been an excellent fit and I've learned a lot.

The SCITT leaders are outstanding at what they do and could not do more for us trainees if they tried. It has been a pleasure to have trained through their programme.
