TESTIMONIALS

“The Star Teachers ITT programme offers trainees the utmost support and the opportunity to observe outstanding teaching in ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ schools. With personalised support from amazing mentors, I have developed my own teaching practice and progressed to delivering outstanding lessons. I would recommend this programme 100% to anyone considering teacher training.”

Star Teachers ITT, Amy Banks

“The course facilitators were very adept at placing the theory being delivered into practical, real-life situations. They effectively used their own school leadership experiences to ensure we understood that what we were learning could benefit us within our school.”

NPQH, Robert Downey, The Grange Secondary School, Runcorn
“We feel wholly supported by Star Institute’s Appropriate Body Service. The Quality Assurance visit provided the Induction Tutor with valuable feedback as to what we can do to further support our NQTs. The NQTs also found it useful and valued the advice the Quality Assurer gave them on how to evidence the Teacher Standards.”
NQT Appropriate Body Service, Hannah Vercoe, St. Bede’s RC High School, Blackburn

“This is a highly reflective course delivered by competent and interesting leaders who inspire and motivate me to want to improve my skills in leadership. One of the most worthwhile and inspiring courses I have been on that I know has already had an impact on me as a middle leader in current role.”
