MFL (French) | Graduated 2018
My initial training had a degree of difficulty that couldn’t have been predicated. Many outside forces added a lot a pressure to what was an already demanding year. That is why I can say with confidence that without the dedicated support from my tutors and mentors, I would have not succeeded in my goal of becoming a teacher.
I chose the SCITT program over other training providers, because I felt the course provided more opportunities to work in a professional school setting with dedicated and trained professionals. This professionalism and degree of subject knowledge allowed me to feel comfortable that I would learn the necessary skills required to succeed in teaching. Alongside the practical skills required in teaching, the course – through use of a lead school – provided a safe space to discuss any anxieties/worries you may have. Whether they were personal or professional.
I chose to postpone my first teaching post in order to gain more experience in the classroom through being a cover supervisor. I accepted apposition at my lead school as I knew it was a place that would be good for my development. Following this, I have recently accepted an NQT position at the same school.
My current role is MFL NQT. Carr Manor Community School.
Completing Leeds SCITT provided me a strong base in order to develop an understanding of what is required in order to teach effectively but also to have a long career in teaching. It taught me that teaching is more than just your subject knowledge, it’s about being adaptable and building relationships amongst other things. It is a discipline that is constantly changing, and the end of your taring year is just the beginning.
In September 20, 2+ years in teaching.
