What Ofsted have to say…

“Employers of trainees comment very favourably on the significant improvements in trainees’ expertise and knowledge brought about by their training”

“The good-quality training ensures trainees are prepared effectively to deliver the early years foundation stage across different early years settings and schools” 

“The high quality face-to-face training, assignments and placements combine to give trainees a firm basis on which to develop their skills and knowledge”

Teaching is a challenging yet rewarding career. If you’d like to help children and young people fulfil their potential and you’d like to contribute to society, teaching is the profession for you.
