82 trainee teachers graduate

82 new teachers have been added to the work force after graduating from Shotton Hall's school-centred initial teacher training course last week. 

Shotton Hall SCITT is an Ofsted outstanding initial teacher training provider now in their fourth year. Teacher training was traditionally studied at universities, but is now also offered in teaching schools across the country, allowing trainees to get hands-on experience from day one.

Nicky Hickman, Director of the Teaching School said: "We are extremely proud of the 82 graduates who have shown true dedication and determination this year. With many already securing jobs for September, we are confident they will go on to make fantastic teachers. 

"Our alliance of over 60 schools, offering various expertise, means each of our trainees have a well rounded experience, leaving them with a strong and lasting foundation to start their teaching careers."

All the graduates have now been recommended to the National College of Teaching and Leadership for ‘Qualified Teacher Status’ with a final formal graduation ceremony from course partners Durham University taking place in July. 

Well done and good luck!
