My name is Robert Brooks and I am an Associate Assistant Headteacher and SCITT Secondary Operational Lead for GLF Schools. We believe that the best place for trainee teachers to learn how to become excellent classroom practitioners is in a school. GLF Schools’ Teacher Training programme allows you to train to be a teacher by spending the majority of your time in a school environment. You will receive high quality support and training from skilled teachers who are passionate about education. By being part of a school from the very first day of your training, successful candidates will have the opportunity to develop a long term career pathway within education.
