On Thursday 29th June 2017 Barr Beacon SCITT hosted a celebration event to recognise the successes and achievements of the 2016-2017 SCITT cohort. The trainees and their guests celebrated in style and enjoyed canapés on arrival. The Chief Executive Officer of the Matrix Academy Trust, Dame Maureen Brennan, opened the celebrations, our guest speaker, Professor Carl Chinn, gave a motivational speech on education and all Headteachers of partner schools attended to present their trainees with certificates of achievement. Subject Course Leaders and SCITT Leaders were also on hand to congratulate the trainees on their achievements. The day marked the hard work, dedication and determination that the trainees have put in to their training in order to ensure the best outcomes for their pupils and celebrated their recommendation to the National College of Teaching and Leadership for Qualified Teacher Status.
We are incredibly proud of the achievements of our SCITT trainees and would like to wish them every success in their roles as Newly Qualified Teachers in September.
