It has been an incredibly successful first year for our SCITT (School Centrered Initial Teacher Training) Teach SouthEast. Run in partnership with SJB in Woking, Teach SouthEast's purpose is to provide a bespoke initial teacher training programme for aspiring secondary school teachers across the South East of England. Trainees are trained by staff from both Salesian and SJB and take up placements in one of our vast network of partnership schools.
Our trainees have been visiting Salesian every other week to receive training on general professional studies in the morning, covering topics such as classroom management and assessing students, and in the afternoon they work within their 'subject hubs' to understand how to teach their specific subject. The commitment from the staff at Salesian who have been mentoring, observing lessons and delivering presentations has been phenomenal and as such the trainees across the Teach SouthEast partnership have done incredibly well.
All 65 Trainees graduated at our Graduation Ceremony in Woking on the 1st July and an amazing 72% have secured NQT (Newly Qualified Teacher) roles within our partnership of 17 schools. This is an incredible achievement and we are proud to have played this role in training outstanding teachers for the students in our schools, to make a difference to them for years to come.
In September we look forward to welcoming our new 72 recruits for another fantastic year for Teach SouthEast.
