“The virtual open evening taught me a lot about what to expect in my training year and what it takes to teach. It also gave me a lot of inspiration and help for writing my personal statement. The team are so welcoming of any type of question. They enhanced my confidence to apply for Nottinghamshire Torch SCITT.
