“The subject knowledge enhancement sessions provided by the school have been great. They’ve helped me translate my own knowledge into lessons I can deliver to all age groups as well as teaching me skills such as how to develop a series of lessons for the new GCSE.”

Graham, History trainee

“I’ve found my mentor this year very supportive. She has given constructive feedback, highlighting areas of both strength and weakness. Whenever an area of improvement has been identified she has provided me with guidance to allow me to improve!”

Sharon, Geography trainee

“The overall experience has been fantastic and the support I have received from my mentors and colleagues has been second to none. The CPD sessions, particularly on Child Protection and SEND have been very influential in terms of informing my teaching to ensure that I demonstrate an awareness of the physical, social and intellectual development of children, so I know how to adapt teaching to support pupils’ education at different stages of development.”

Graeme, Computer Studies trainee
