Congrats to the DET graduates!

The first cohort of The Training School’s DET students marked the end of their course and celebrated this huge achievement with a graduation ceremony at Canterbury Christ Church University.

The group has completed the Diploma in Education and Training – SEND Specialist Pathway, and is the first group ever to achieve this specialism at the university.

Jo Yarlett, Director of The Training School, said, “I am so proud of our first cohort to have achieved this qualification. I have watched them develop into excellent practitioners over the two years and have seen the distance they have travelled. It has been a privilege to have been on this journey with them.”

This is a very exciting and pivotal moment in the lives of St Dominic’s, Brantridge and Grafham Grange schools.  Academy conversion under the sponsorship of Orchard Hill College Academy Trust will help secure their futures and, no doubt, lead to better outcomes for pupils and students, families and carers, staff and all stakeholders.

Ken Cowdery, Chair of Governors
