Why Choose Us?

bex 1


Successful trainees become part of the KITE family! We work hard to support trainees from application, through to graduation and we are committed to ensuring that trainees are supported every step of the way, at a professional, academic, and pastoral level.

Our cohorts are small in size, which means that strong, supportive relationships are developed between KITE colleagues, schools and trainees. Some trainees join us straight out of university whilst others have been employed, sometimes in educational settings, whilst others chosen to have a total career change.

We place trainees with outstanding practitioners who are committed and invest in supporting, coaching and training individuals new to the profession.

KITE is committed to providing outstanding training which is led by experienced experts in their field; these include headteachers, senior leaders, specialist leaders in education, curriculum leads and external educational consultants.

All colleagues will support the mental health and well-being of all trainees as we recognise and understand that everyone’s personal circumstances are unique and therefore everyone is treated as an individual.

We ensure that all trainees are well prepared and organised when preparing to apply for jobs, for example we offer support in writing letters of application, provide training on interview techniques, offer mock interviews and ensure that trainees are the first to know about vacancies within the schools that we work with! 

All trainees engage in a full induction day in July which helps to prepare them for the start of term in September and it also gives them the opportunity to get to meet other trainees and the core team!
