  • I would just like to thank you and the whole KNSTE Team for the fabulous conference last week. We really enjoyed it and (perhaps more importantly) gained a whole raft of ideas to implement back in school. The presentations were really informative and everything linked so well. Well done to everyone!

  • It was an absolute privilege and pleasure to work alongside the KNSTE and their students. I wish all concerned all the very best for the future.

  • "My Subject knowledge has also improved by the sessions I have attended at University. The SCITT has given me the knowledge and the academic background to be able to go into school with an awareness of why things are done the way that they are. It has given me the foundations to be able to make informed judgements about my own practice, by giving me the confidence to explain and rationalise my decisions. The SCITT sessions have given me the foundations upon which to lay the rest of my teaching career."

    Feedback on the Farm Visit September 2017
  • The day gave a really good insight into how the course is actually broken down. There seemed to be lots of extra help, for example supported classes if you are struggling in certain areas, and continued support after graduation. The lecturers all seemed like they wanted you to succeed, and put in the extra to help you achieve. One of my main concerns about taking the leap into a career I'm actually excited about, is the fear of not being able to find a job following the course. The head teacher at the school we attended showed great pride in Keele's teaching methods. She had mentioned that student teachers from Keele seem to be a cut above other teaching students in the area.

  • I really enjoyed the back to school day and it was good to see both the academic and practical sides of the course.
    Back to School Day Attendee December 2016
  • I thoroughly enjoyed the back to school day and it cemented the fact that I want to be a teacher and that I wanted to do the course at Keele.
    Back to School Day Attendee December 2016
  • Today was brilliant thank you. It was a real insight in to how the SCITT lessons are taught and the experience of primary school teaching. After speaking to one of the current students today I heard this is a new idea. I would most definitely recommend this day to anybody considering the course."
