'This course has been a great programme for giving me the opportunity to get hands-on experience from the very start of term. This has been pivotal in providing me with the chance to watch, and learn from, skilled and knowledgeable practitioners in their environment, and then being able to rapidly transform this learning and apply it to my own teaching.
However, experience is not the only key factor that has impressed me about the Sutton SCITT. During the course, the level of support and professional guidance has been evident and effective throughout. Both the ‘Professional Studies’ and ‘Subject Studies’ have been invaluable in creating a solid pedagogical basis on which I can build upon during my placements.'

"I found my Design and Technology training at my two placement schools exciting and forward thinking. Design and Technology is about constant change and enhancement; this is exactly what my placements encapsulated. The support I received was second to none and I made some lifelong friends."
