"The support I have been given during my ITT year at Brookfield has been second to none. Although there have been tough times during the year, the entire team was supportive throughout, never hesitating to offer me help or advice when I needed it. Running alongside my subject specific training came the weekly bespoke Professional Themes meetings where practising experts delivered presentations tailored specifically to our group's needs. In short, I feel that completing my ITT year at Brookfield has been great for my development and I look forward to continuing into my ECT year here."
