Without a doubt, the Minsthorpe SCITT programme gave me a realistic and genuine experience of life as a teacher. Both of my school placements gave me the opportunity to learn from outstanding teachers and I was able to secure a job that I love very quickly because of this exceptional training.
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.
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.
