Welcome to Teacher CPD & Training
- "Fundamental to the school's partnership work is the drive to improve the quality of education for all young people. So, for example, the SCITT provides high quality training and development programmes for teachers and learning support staff from the pre-service training of primary and secondary phase teachers, to growing and nurturing the quality of future and current school leaders through the extensive leadership programme, including Executive leadership."
