A positive start to another year!
Our Primary Trainees have now settled into their school placements after four busy weeks getting to know their classes and colleagues. They found being in school for the first week of term useful to observe how our amazing mentors settled the children back in after what was such an unusual summer term. They've been able to take what they've been learning through our training sessions and watch it applied in practice in their schools, and are now beginning to build their own mental model for great teaching. We have heard from our schools that the trainees have brought a professional and reflective attitude which is what we want from our latest cohort of key workers. Well done class of 2021 - It’s an exciting process to witness every year!
We've also been delighted to hear from our NQTs who are enjoying the freedom of having their own classes. We wish them the very best in their new schools.
If you’re thinking about training to teach with us, keep an eye on this blog and our Twitter @ExCoTSA and Facebook www.facebook.com/ExCoTSA feeds to learn more about our school-centred approach.
