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
Hard work and dedication are a few qualities needed to fulfil the role of becoming a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT). This is supported by friendly professional mentors who are not here to catch you out but to support you being the best that you can be. As a mature student I wondered if I had made the right choice. However due to the location and classroom based learning, SCITT accommodated all my needs. My continuing professional development has enhanced my ability to deliver effective lessons for pupils to thrive. Along my journey I have built positive relationship with trainees, pupils, parents and staff and now I look forward to what the future brings. I cannot thank SCITT enough.
Being in involved in the YTCA SCITT year has been an exciting learning journey for me. Training a mentee has been an enjoyable experience. Observing my mentee developing skills during the training year has allowed me to impart my own teaching knowledge/skills to the next generation of teachers.
