We asked some of our trainees what they thought about their chosen course and what they did to prepare for the training year:
"The aspects of the Maths course I enjoyed the most were working with students every day and watching them grow in their understanding and their mathematical ability".
Molly - Maths trainee
"Subject Knowledge in Art and Design was worked on through reading, scripting, and practical experimentation to grasp new knowledge and delivery".
Paul - Art and Design trainee
"I enjoyed helping students to develop their skills in English. I particularly enjoyed students reach that ‘Aha!’ moment when then finally understood something on which they previously struggled".
Saleh - English trainee
"Before and during the MFL course I worked on my subject knowledge by reviewing Seneca, consulting university textbooks, listening to more Spanish material, staying up to date with Spanish news and attending subject seminars".
