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
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.
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.
