Whilst half term breaks are advertised, participants on the programme will have a significant amount of academic study to complete during this time. We would would like to make you aware that holidays away from home may result in trainee teachers falling behind on their academic elements.

I was offered a job at the end of March. The headteacher had spotted me at the SCITT interview a year before and had been watching me for a whole year. I had my second placement in their school in January and loved it. It was like they were competing with the other schools for me to apply to them.
