I have enjoyed working with SCITT trainee and feel that she was well-supported throughout the placement by YCTA. The trainee received a good level of training and was prepared for the working in the school. The assessment processes were clear and there was a strong relationship between the trainee, provider and school.
What People Say
I was given an opportunity to follow a dream. Being a teacher was a million miles away from my previous life in the construction industry. The YTCA SCITT gave me the platform and incredible support to fulfil my potential. 4 years later and I am an established English teacher (and assistant head of year) in a great team, in a great school.
To me the most significant part of becoming a teacher is the impact you can have on students, as horrifically cheesy as this sounds. The idea that a student could go home after a day of school and when asked about their day could say "my geography lesson was great Mr. Betts taught us about the UK space industry!" is really amazing to me. That we can have such an influence with our every action.
