Partnership Manager, Stockton-On-Tees Teacher Training Partnership
Following a 16-year career in secondary teaching, Kirsten joined Stockton-On-Tees Local Authority as a school improvement adviser. That role led directly to the opportunity to lead Stockton Borough Council's ITT provision, a role she has undertaken with relish (mostly) for 5 years, alongside other roles including NQT/ECT Induction Adviser. She has learned a lot about ITT provision along the way and is still learning as ever present and new challenges rear their heads. She would love to have a life but is generally too exhausted to do anything other than watch discerning tv such as The Mandalorian and complain about trainees who seem to get younger every year as she becomes more ‘experienced’.
