The YTCA SCITT was a great opportunity to learn on the job and to be able to understand the demands and responsibilities of the career. It was a great experience to work with a range of age groups and individuals to be prepared for future employment. Working with different teachers meant that I could take advice and develop my own style of teaching to match my personality.
What People Say
Hard work and dedication are a few qualities needed to fulfil the role of becoming a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT). This is supported by friendly professional mentors who are not here to catch you out but to support you being the best that you can be. As a mature student I wondered if I had made the right choice. However due to the location and classroom based learning, SCITT accommodated all my needs. My continuing professional development has enhanced my ability to deliver effective lessons for pupils to thrive. Along my journey I have built positive relationship with trainees, pupils, parents and staff and now I look forward to what the future brings. I cannot thank SCITT enough.
I began the SCITT with YTCA in 2015 after being a cover supervisor previously. I was extremely well supported throughout the process and it was made clear to me what I needed to do in order to achieve QTS. Since I graduated, I have secured a permanent job at Minsthorpe and am now a TLR holder in my department.
