career in teaching.
Why did you decide to join the Cheshire East SCITT programme?
I attended an open evening and loved the atmosphere, the way the information was provided and the response to questions was fantastic. The course offered more time in a school than others and this felt more appropriate to me.
How are you finding the course?
It’s a great course with a fantastic support system. Mentors are great and the course feels like it is personalised.
What are you looking forward to?
I enjoy seeing the students making progress and also building relationships with the class. I’m looking forward to having my own class to work with regularly and seeing them progress through a school.
