you're shadowing and working with fantastic teachers that are current

SFE SCITT eases you into school life and it gives you the chance to be full time in a school environment, and it helps you build up your confidence. The SCITT Programme ensures trainees have a broad knowledge of many different aspects of teaching. Some of these include phonics and early reading, maths, english and obviously the other foundation subjects.

One of the main attractions of the course was the fact that you’re shadowing and working with fantastic teachers that are current and they’re in the classroom right now implementing their best practice and you’re learning from them. You also get to work with current and ex-headteachers to help shape your practice and ultimately to make you the best teacher you can be.

Laura Cullen – Services For Education Teacher Trainee

you get a really thorough understanding of what school is and what teaching is

I’d say its probably the most important year in my teaching career because a lot of the things that are developed during that year, prepared me for everything I was going to face in my future years. The fact that it was really robust, and really tailored to what you need to do, the amount of people you have to communicate and work with, it really develops your skillset and you get a really thorough understanding of what school is and what teaching is.

I spent eight to nine years in my training school, I moved through the ranks there to subject leader and phase leader, then training manager within the school, until eventually I decided to leave and found an Assistant Head post at another school.

I’M SO GLAD I DECIDED TO TRAIN WITH SERVICES FOR EDUCATION AND I AM OVERWHELMED BY HOW IMPORTANT MY WELL-BEING HAS BEEN TO THEM

I’d just like to take this opportunity to say thank Tricia for being such a supportive, friendly, caring, thoughtful and approachable tutor. It really makes things a lot easier having a tutor who knows how it feels to train as a new teacher. I’m so glad I decided to train with Services for Education and I am overwhelmed by how important my well-being has been to them. I’d also like to thank you for going out of your way to get me inducted onto the course as a late student… I truly believe that the decision to become a teacher is an amazing one for me and it wouldn’t have been possible if you hadn’t gone the extra mile to get me on the course. You are a credit to Services for Education.

THE EXCELLENT TRAINING FULLY EQUIPPED ME FOR THE WORLD OF TEACHING

Overall my teacher training experience with SFE was a very positive one. The excellent training fully equipped me for the world of teaching. The ongoing care and support from my tutor, school mentor, programme manager and Martyn Collin were exceptional. I am so glad I have chosen this programme as I do not feel they are other programmes like this. The cohorts are relatively small which has its huge benefits also.

Therefore anyone comtemplating on whether to do their teacher training with SFE, I fully recommended you to go ahead. I promise you won’t regret it!

A FANTASTIC STEP INTO THE WORLD OF TEACHING

I trained with Services For Education in the 2018/19 ITT cohort and found the training and experiences a fantastic step into the world of teaching. Coming from a non-school based background, the additional help and support of the tutors and mentors help guide me in the right direction. Now in my newly qualified teacher year, I can see how the different lectures and training days have supported my teaching.

“One of the main positives of training with Services For Education is the amount of time you are in school training directly with a class teacher. This proved much more beneficial than attending lectures. For those who want to learn teaching on the job, this is a course I would certainly recommend.

SUPPORT FOR NQTS AT THE END OF A PHONE OR EMAIL. NOTHING IS TOO MUCH TROUBLE

School support for NQTs is at the end of a phone or email!

Nothing is too much trouble for the team. Their advice is communicated well and they give very clear messages to NQT Mentors and NQTs. Visits to school are very professional and as well as celebrating success visits can also guide schools in how to support NQTs further or how NQTs need to gather more evidence.

Mentor training covers specific need to know topics and mentors feel fully informed.

I AM ALWAYS REASSURED I AM BEING LOOKED AFTER KNOWING SFE ARE MY APPROPRIATE BODY

Talking to you, listening to your professional opinion is most invaluable, and all part of the learning experience. I am always reassured I am being looked after knowing SFE are my Appropriate Body. Thank you for all your time.

THE EXCELLENT TRAINING FULLY EQUIPPED ME FOR THE WORLD OF TEACHING

Services for Education have been invaluable to us as a school in their support of our NQT’s over the past few years. Not only do they offer advice based on their years of experience and knowledge they also provide excellent CPD opportunities for our NQT’s. We look forward to working with them again in the future.

and throughout the rest of your career as a teacher...

i've always found them very supportive and willing to help

I’ve contacted Services for Education several times for advice with RE in school: planning, delivery and additional documentation. I’ve always found them very supportive and willing to help. They were also more than happy to come to school and meet face-to-face. I’ve also used the service during my time as NQT Mentor and, again, have always found the team to be very knowledgeable and able to answer my queries quickly and efficiently.

THEY TOOK THEIR TIME TO FULLY EXPLAIN AND ANSWER QUESTIONS THOROUGHLY

Due to the nature of the materials the course was very intense, however the presenters were very knowledgeable and took their time to fully explain and answer questions thoroughly. The course materials were very detailed and concise and I am sure will be invaluable as I start this journey into an area that is completely alien. It was great to go over specific examples and talk through the best way to approach the concerns.

THANK YOU FOR THE EXCELLENT RESOURCES YOU PROVIDED DURING LOCKDOWN

I just wanted to say thank you for the excellent resources you have provided for schools and families during the lockdown and school closure period. I have used the offline activity ideas as a weekly fun challenge for our pupils (10 weekly challenges so far) and they have been loving them. Thank you for the ideas – they have really helped!
