I can't express how amazing I have found this course. Yes, it has been hard and has been a lot of work (that's part of the fun) but how this course it organised and set up is so well thought out. I have kept telling myself throughout this course 'to just trust in the process'. Now that I am here at the end, I know I was right to trust the process. I can't express how much I have learnt this year and how much more confident I feel in myself personally and within that professional classroom environment, and how prepared I feel to step into my own classroom.’ Sarah Chrisp (2023 Graduate)

Selection Procedure
