You will work closely with our cohort of trainees, SCITT Tutors and Lead Mentors, school mentors, HEI representatives, governance members, partnership schools, and all those involved in the delivery of our ITT, ECT and professional development programmes.

Bishop Challoner Catholic College is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. It has policies and procedures to ensure this occurs. The successful applicant will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS check.
