Are you a qualified teacher and thinking of returning to teaching?
Welcome to the new trainees. We hope you have enjoyed your Primary Placements. We look forward to meeting you all at the end of the term.
“Having my own class (that is shared with another teacher) has been great and something that I knew I wouldn't get as part of the PGCE programme. Since the first day I have felt, and been treated, like a teacher.”
“My host school has offered a tremendous amount of support and guidance, giving me every opportunity to succeed in the teaching profession.”
"The SD programme has been challenging from the start, helping to foster speedy progress as I work towards gaining QTS and a PGCE.”
“I met my mentor in the summer term and talked through my strengths and weaknesses as a teacher. My training, organised mainly by my mentor, has involved me contacting other teachers and working with them. All have been welcoming and willing to sit and talk through different aspects of teaching.”
“The programme has offered me the opportunity to use my prior school experience whilst developing my knowledge and understanding of effective learning.”
