What’s your background?

I was a teaching assistant whilst at university and continued in this role after I

had graduated. 

Why did you decide to teach?

It is something I wanted to do from the age of 15 -  I just felt like it was

something I would enjoy and be good at. 

What do you like about teaching?

I like making a difference to young people's lives and helping them to mould

a future that they will be happy with. 

Why did you choose the School Centred Initial Teacher Training route?

I chose the SCITT as I knew the Alliance schools were good or outstanding schools who were committed to making teachers become even better, and that was something I wanted to be a part of. I didn’t want to learn to teach in a lecture hall, I wanted to learn in a school environment and get straight into lessons.

How are you finding it?

I am really happy with the course and my placement school. I could not ask for better support from all of the team back at the Training Centre in Holmes Chapel and with my placement school - they are all amazing. 

What do you look forward to?

I am looking forward to finishing the course and getting my qualifications to be a teacher.
