Comments from PCP SCITT alumni

I am so pleased that I applied and was accepted onto this course. It has provided me with an excellent start to teaching and the supportive and caring approach of course leaders and trainees has really helped me to develop.

With the course being so school-centred, it meant that we quickly got to put the theory into practice. Now I’ve completed my first term as a teacher, I wanted to say thanks for all the help and support last year. 

I really feel the PCP course has prepared me well to become a teacher. I’ve already recommended it to two people and will continue to do so.
