Diane Lloyd
Head of Initial Teacher Training

I have had many years’ experience of training and supporting many amazing teachers whose impact can be seen every day in classrooms. I am delighted to be working at the Great Schools Trust as the Head of ITT and supporting trainees in gaining a PGCE with Cumbria University.  Each of our academies is fully supportive of ensuring that each trainee teacher has the skills and knowledge to develop into an outstanding teacher.    I am confident that with our help  you will be fully supported in developing your teaching skills and putting research informed theory into practice.  I firmly believe that any training should be delivered with you and not to you and that everyone who comes to us is a unique person with their owns skills and knowledge which we will value highly and use to support each other
