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.
What People Say
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.
The Yorkshire Three Counties Alliance SCITT course is well structured, with students gradually increasing the number of lessons they teach as the course progresses, meeting regularly with placement mentors and external trainers to develop teaching skills. The support I have received from my mentors and fellow SCITT students has been the highlight of my teacher training year.
