St Alban’s Catholic Academy are facilitators to help trainee teachers gain placements and embark on successful careers. St. Alban’s offers bespoke extra support sessions to it’s student teachers, from the point of offer and throughout their course, to help them progress and enjoy teaching. Example sessions are:
Voluntary experience in schools prior to course commencement
Support for skills tests
Informal meetings with other students, past and present.

 "Training to be a teacher is like riding a rollercoaster, it has its highs and its lows, challenges and successes.  The opportunities that I have been given and to come out of the SCITT programme in Harlow have been fantastic.  I am eternally grateful to the Essex teacher training programme for organising and giving me the opportunity to gain such a rewarding career.  You are supported from start to finish by high quality mentors, external mentors and course leads to become the best teacher that you can possibly be."  Richard Foster 2019
