Katrina Brockbank, ELIP School Direct

As Teaching School Business Manager, I have overall responsibility for finance, administration and marketing of the School Direct programme.  I joined Tor View in 2016, and bring a wealth of experience in business management of both commercial organisations and government funded projects. 


I work closely with Nicole and Laura to ensure that we deliver best value for our students.  We know that quality of delivery is important, so we spend more of your money ensuring face to face PgCE delivery on site.  We know that you need a variety of learning opportunities, so we offer a programme of ELIP modules in addition to your core modules that we know will benefit you.  We know it’s the little things that count, which is why we provide £1 per day towards your lunch or a drink from the on site café.  And we know that its sometimes hard to stay alert in a full day of lectures, which is why we provide an endless supply of tea and coffee.


I’m proud to be part of PLSCITT and hope that your journey to a new career starts here, with us, at Tor View.

Nicole Guest, ELIP School Direct

I joined Tor View in January 2019 as the Teaching School Administrator. My main role is to provide day to day care for our student cohort. This involves, recruitment of new students, liaising with delivery partners, tracking attendance, sourcing placements and ensuring students are thriving and well supported throughout the duration of the course.  This is important to me as I believe with a good support network, our trainee teachers will thrive and become outstanding teachers.   


My other duties include managing our Outreach services, providing administrative support to the Teaching School, liaising with our alliances and marketing and communications.
