“Having worked in a very different profession for a number of years prior to my decision to step into teaching I was, of course, keen to make the correct choice of training partner to begin my career.  Following research into the various routes and meeting a number of suppliers I found Southend SCITT to be the most transparent and fit most with my desire to step straight into a school environment.

The subsequent interview process was efficient and provided sufficient opportunity to discuss my questions and concerns. From this point throughout my year I enjoyed an open and straightforward communication with my host school, the SCITT team at SHSG and CCCU. A clear structure and support system meant that any issues were handled quickly and simply as they arose allowing aspects of the course to be tailored to my needs.

Being in the classroom from day one greatly boosted my confidence and is something I would highly recommend to anyone stepping into this career.”
