from our Teaching School trainees
The training experience places you in a first-hand professional experience that shows you what it is like to be a teacher. This is a positive process that is supported brilliant by the Teaching School and your placement school.
I’ve had the best year and completely fallen in love with my job and teaching in general…I’m fully prepared for working in schools, and a huge reason for that is the Teaching School.
…you have provided me all the knowledge and support needed to become an outstanding trainee.
I have learnt so much and have consequently developed my teaching skills and knowledge to a point I didn’t believe possible.
I really enjoyed the practical element of the course, where I could put the theory that I learnt into practice.
Being part of a team in school during my training was so important. It allow me to both develop my teaching and create lasting friendships with my mentor and colleagues.
It’s like a family – I have loved meeting and working with such supportive colleagues.
It’s been a roller coaster of ups and downs. Supportive school staff have helped me through the course. I have made new friends. But most importantly the children have made me laugh during the tougher stages of the course. Remember who and why you are there for.
You have provided fantastic support all year. The schools are committed and well chosen, and the school mentors are great. The training isn’t as difficult as you think as long as you keep on top of work and ask for help when you need it. The more people you get to know in schools, the better you will feel.
I wanted to thank you for your great support and help throughout these years as said before, and of course for your fantastic references, thanks so much! But, especially, I wanted to thank you for feeling proud of me and for always believing in me 🙂 . I can tell you that you have inspired me in the professional and personal level and meeting people like you has been one of the best things that has happened to me in these hard two years.
