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.
What People Say
The SCITT was the perfect way for me to get in to teaching. It allowed me to gain experience of the classroom as well as studying for a PGCE. I gained valuable knowledge and ideas from colleagues, mentors and fellow trainee teachers. Being a Maths trainee the bursary really helped me financially to continue to provide for my family. I would highly recommend the course to potential future trainee.
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.
