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
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.
The SCITT process was well organised. My placement schools were very accommodating. Providing you keep yourself motivated and organised it is fairly easy to make good progress. I fully enjoyed my time on the programme and would highly recommend to others. The SCITT lead had a clear understanding of how to support us and the regular training sessions were well resourced and enhanced my teaching pedagogy further. I gained so much confidence and inspiration from completing my SCITT journey and fortunately it led me to take on a full time temporary position at Minsthorpe.
