C.I.T - Community Inclusive Trust. Where learning comes first

Welcome to our Case Studies page

Don’t take our word for it – click on the Case Studies below…

I came into education as a TA. C.I.T then supported me to do my Teacher Training and Forest School Training. I’m now a teacher and part of the Senior Leadership Team at a special school in Spalding. I love my job, especially working with the pupils. Every day is different and you get to see a totally different side to the children, watching them grow from Year 7 to Year 11. It’s great to be on that journey with them.

I started in education as a Midday Supervisor then moved into a 1:1 TA role, supporting a pupil with SEND. C.I.T supported me on my journey to train as a Teacher, working in school with a one-day a week release to college. I am now Executive Headteacher of two special schools in Spalding. A career in education has so many benefits. The job brings so much joy each day. I love watching children grow through the school making so much progression both academically and socially. It gives you a constant feeling of being proud of the process for that child.

There are several wonderful examples of past apprentices who have then been supported by the Trust to train to teach and are now working as fully qualified teachers in many of our schools. As a Trust, we are committed to using local, aspirational and talented people to fill our recruitment needs. The Apprenticeship Programme has ensured we can do that!

I loved spending time with my own children when they were younger so I knew I wanted to find a job working with children but needed to challenge myself. I applied for an Apprenticeship position at Sandon School and got the job. I have never loved work so much, from spending time with the pupils, through to the learning side of the Apprenticeship.

The staff at Poplar Farm have been brilliant! They picked up on the sensitive nature of our son and made sure he got to know the staff through nursery visits prior to starting school.
Spencer walked in on his first day with a spring in his step, and has never looked back.

We saw a very quick improvement in our son’s emotional wellbeing and behaviour within just his first week at GANF Schools. Even at home he was much more settled. Stephen has come so far and exceeded our expectations. GANF have embraced his individuality.

School was always a bad place for me. If I thought of school I would just think of being treated badly and crying a lot. The Priory is so different to anything like that, the teachers actually understand me and listen to my point of view about things. And it’s not embarrassing here if you don’t quite get something and you need extra help, the teachers just help you.

Charlie loves the outdoors, it is a sensory experience for her and the fact that Garth offer so much of this within their curriculum has been pivotal to Charlie’s progression and I honestly feel that they treat her like a queen.

Kurts runs to the car when he knows he is going to school. The staff are amazing with him. Kurts is nonverbal but he has now learnt to understand fluent English and Makaton: this means he can now communicate which was a huge part of his frustration prior to starting at Garth.
