Another 33 newly qualified primary and secondary school teachers have graduated from the Tommy Flowers School Centred Initial Teacher Training this summer, after receiving exemplary training for a year within a school environment.
The Chrysalis Theatre in Willen was where the 14 primary and 19 secondary school newly qualified teachers received their Post Graduate Certificates in Education, which were presented by MK’s Mayor Martin Petchey. The Mayor praised the recipients on their achievement and commitment to teaching.
“Teachers need to engage students in the classroom and deliver lessons with enthusiasm and vitality, in order to inspire students to learn and help shape their future lives”, Denbigh School’s Headteacher, Andy Squires said.
“The Tommy Flowers SCITT, which was only established in 2014, has already trained over a hundred outstanding teachers, who are now mostly teaching in Milton Keynes schools.”
The NQTs were congratulated by special guests Cheryl Eyre, MK Council’s Head of Setting and School Effectiveness, Ian Tett, Headteacher at Oakgrove School and Jo-Anne Hoarty, St Paul’s School’s Headteacher.
The Tommy Flowers SCITT is an outstanding training partnership with links to many primary schools, 12 local secondary schools, a special school and a pupil referral unit.
