Rebecca Underhill

Head of Bluecoat SCITT, Trust Lead for Teacher Induction (SCITT & ECT)

I started my career as a science teacher in Nottingham when I trained with Teach First. I remained at the school I trained in (and still teach there now!) and in 2013 I was appointed SCITT Manager and I was involved with the SCITT’s inception, programme planning and strategic development. I took up the role as Head of SCITT in 2016 and have led the SCITT through two Ofsted inspections. In 2022 I also took the role of Trust Lead for ECT's. I have a passion for supporting and developing those new to the profession and with working alongside colleagues to develop their skills to best support new entrants to teaching.
