“Shireland Collegiate Academy has been incredibly supportive of my journey towards being a teacher. Even on the day of my interview they provided guidance on the Professional Skills Tests which was invaluable! Since then they have always been available when I needed any advice and guidance. It has been great to have such friendly and approachable people I can talk to.
The training sessions have been very useful, in particular the eye-opening EAL (English as an additional language) session! At the same time, Shireland understands that time in school is important. So these sessions have not been too time consuming. They also seem to understand the stress we are all under at school and ensure these training sessions are interesting and enjoyable.
I am glad I chose to complete my School Direct training through Shireland. I am very grateful to all the staff there for all their support this year.”
