'The support from Red Kite has been unbelievable. The standard of the Red Kite training days is very high and the sessions always give me practical ideas to use straight away. Red Kite have high expectations of us so I know I am being challenged to be the best teacher I can be.'
- Ishrat Shafiq, Secondary Chemistry
'My placement school has been excellent. The class teacher is inspirational to watch and has given me lots of support and advice. The Red Kite days have also been a real highlight. The teachers who deliver the sessions are experts in what they are teaching us and very passionate about what they do.'
- Sherri Cramer, Primary
The course has flown by, because it is so challenging, rewarding and enjoyable. The programme provides opportunities for Trainees to share experience and to work with outstanding teachers across the partnership. One of my highlights so far was, at the end of my first placement, a year 11 girl telling me that ‘I couldn’t leave yet’ because I’d done so much to help her with coursework.

'All staff were very helpful and knowledgeable throughout my placements and I think this has made training much better for me. I was a bit apprehensive about the academic side of the course, but I realised quickly that I was able to cope with the workload through the support offered.'
