This course has got to be the best by far to become a teacher! Excellent organisation, skilled tutors and so much support given throughout the year...4 years on, I have moved on to become a Maths leader and part of a management team...if you have the passion for teaching then this is definitely the route to go and you will see the rewards you get! - Sukhpreet D, 2018

The SCITT has been an amazing experience and has transformed me, with the guidance of inspirational tutors, from a novice trainee in September to a confident teacher, ready to share my enthusiasm with my own class, in the space of 9½ months - Owen P, 2019
