I have found the guidance from everyone at Orange Moon to be swift, accurate and intuitive. Setting up new training routes can be challenging but the leadership evinced and knowledge that has been shared has made the process much easier. I have also been impressed with the sense of moral purpose behind the planning and there is a sense of drive and belief when discussing new training opportunities. The seemingly daunting administration process for apprenticeships has also been helpfully navigated for us; a good partnership has been forged with a like-minded team

My training with the Bradford Birth to 19 SCITT was a fantastic experience that prepared me for the rewards and challenges of teaching. Practical experience from day 1 is definitely challenging, but I feel it was vital to get a feel for teaching and I would recommend it as a pathway to anyone considering teaching, especially if you are coming from a different industry or profession. I was supported all the way through my training year by an experienced and respected tutor, and the weekly sessions helped develop my own teaching style.

I just wanted to say what a very positive experience I have found our relationship with Orange Moon to be. The people we recruited learned so much during their traineeships. Their enthusiasm was nurtured and their skills and confidence really increased. Having them on placement with us was a very positive experience for the children in our care.
We have just agreed to take on four apprentices and there are another two who are working part time for us on temporary contracts and gaining work experience.
Many thanks to both you and Carol for being truly excellent, professional, kind and nurturing tutors.

Early Foundations Teaching School Alliance and Orange Moon Training have been working in partnership for the last 2years. As a training provider they have supported the alliance in training and recruiting 60 TA’s for the schools and settings we partner with and 95% of the trainees have now gained employment as Teaching Assistants in schools or Early Years setting. The quality of support provided to the learners and the employers has been the best we have experienced. I have successfully recruited 3 members of staff from the trainee placements for my own school.
I personally wanted to thank Orange Moon for the quality of service they have provided and will continue to work with them in the future.”
