Daryl Bailey, primary MFL coordinator, Hove Park School, after a DfES conference on the National Languages Strategy.

  • “Both Sarah and have really enjoyed being part of the 'ITT' team. We have been made to feel that our feedback is not only important but that it could be acted upon. I have had students in my classes for 20 years and I can honestly say that my experience with Sussex- 7-14 PGCE has been the most enjoyable. Not only do Sarah and I feel that we have 'helped' tomorrow’s teachers but we have also benefited personally too. Jenny and Kylie have been a wonderful addition to our team! Thank you”.
