Initial Teacher Training


  • Geoffrey Field Junior School and Christ the King School are the lead schools in ITT, working with Primary schools within our local area to provide School Direct fee funded and salaried placements across Reading and beyond. They work in partnership with the University of Reading, who have an exceptional reputation in teacher training. The University sessions are complimented/supplemented by a high quality training programme provided by the lead schools and designed and mainly presented by Shelly Hancock (9 half days this year). The trainees are consequently assured of having a well-rounded programme, with a clear emphasis on mentorship throughout. Interviews for the 2017 round will be held in early December.
