1.What are the unique selling points about Leeds SCITT?
Leeds SCITT offers opportunities that other providers don’t. From day one you are given bespoke support and guidance from leading practitioners that prepares you for the all-important NQT year and beyond. Other providers do not give you as much ‘hands on’ experience within a classroom and which is why SCITT trainees are so successful beyond their training. SCITT delivers a programme that gets you into schools working with students, leading practitioners and SLT from day one. These opportunities provide essential experience and develop confidence.
2.What have you enjoyed most about your time on the course?
Spending time in a variety of schools and learning environments, learning from leading practitioners and working alongside trainees specialising in a diverse range of subjects.
3.What are your career ambitions for the next five years?
Head of Faculty (Humanities)
4. What advice would you give to applicants when they are deciding who to train with?
Research and Reputation.
SCITT is held in high esteem across the teaching profession as schools are confident that a SCITT trainee will have passed a rigorous, well balanced and supportive programme making them some of the best teachers around.
