GORSE SCITT offers Trainees the opportunity to experience teaching in 3 contrasting placements. Alongside these core placements, we also offer the opportunity to attend: a SILC school (Specialist Inclusive Learning Centre), our post 16 provision, a primary school, a school where English is an Additional Language and also our alternative provision. All of this provides invaluable experience that trainee teachers can take with them throughout their entire teaching career, starting in their NQT year. One of our fantastic English Trainees currently completing the training programme, Grace, discusses her initial experience whilst at two of her placements.
At each of your placements with GORSE SCITT, you receive support directly from the school as well as our central team. Trainees are assigned a professional mentor alongside a mentor at the school who offer support and guidance on all aspects of your teaching. Grace offers her advice to those preparing for their initial placement.
