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.
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.
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.
