Testimonials

"I am so glad I have opted for a SD QTS course; Our professional studies courses have been delivered by a range of highly accomplished teachers; it is so reassuring to know that after they have taught us, our tutors are straight back into schools and work on the 'front line' so to speak. Additionally, I have found that my relationship with my in-school mentor has been a valuable support tool. Due to our extra time in schools this half term, the fact that my mentor is such an approachable individual with a palpable passion for his subject, as well as a record of truly excellent teaching practice has meant that I have constant access to high quality support and advice, with practical teaching activities as well as discussions that grapple with academic theory and subject specific debates"
