The Yorkshire Three Counties Alliance SCITT course is well structured, with students gradually increasing the number of lessons they teach as the course progresses, meeting regularly with placement mentors and external trainers to develop teaching skills. The support I have received from my mentors and fellow SCITT students has been the highlight of my teacher training year.
What People Say
The YTCA SCITT Programme has been a challenging but enjoyable year. The programme has a holistic approach to progression towards an outstanding practitioner. I have been fortunate to train in a very strong, thought provoking English Department, developing my skills as a teacher. Meeting a fantastic group of trainees who have been overwhelmingly supportive during this year.
I am grateful for my time as trainee teacher, what a whirlwind of a year! With so many positive ups and also a few downs however I understand that’s just part of being a teacher! This journey has changed me as a person and adapted my ways of learning and understanding so that I am able to provide the best opportunities for my students learning.
The SCITT has helped me progress and develop myself throughout my teacher training and has been exceptional in supporting my opportunities and professional football career, which I feel has really been a positive for me. I have been able to pursue my career as a teacher along with juggling my football career.
Throughout my placements I was in schools which were accurately suited to my needs in order for me to develop as a teacher, I am grateful and thankful for both my lead mentors and my mentors as they were extremely supportive and all incredible teachers, and it was really nice to watch them in their practice. This also developed my knowledge of multiple ways of delivering lessons.
