My training year was truly amazing! I was able to rub shoulders with outstanding teachers which not only improved my knowledge and understanding of the National Curriculum and the Teacher Standards but it also gave me the confidence to inspire the next generation. I'm grateful for all the support and guidance I have received and I couldn't recommend the School Direct course more highly!
