Rebecca Hammonds - Primary SCITT trainee 2019/2020

"Joining The Sheffield SCITT has been the best decision I have made. This course fully enables you to immerse yourself in the classroom from day one!"

 

 

Rebecca Hammonds, one of our Primary SCITT trainees here at  The Sheffield SCITT has secured a job in the primary school she trained in!

 

Recently, I have secured a job at St. Catherine's Catholic Primary School. This has been my home school during my SCITT year.

The training I have received has been exceptionally valuable when applying for teaching positions. Trainees were supported in writing their personal statements, and were invited to an employability workshop, therefore when it came to applications and interviewing I felt prepared and confident to show all I had learnt!

I began applying for jobs at the beginning of February and I was extremely lucky to have secured a position by early March.

One thing I would say to future trainees is to be organised, the job application process does require time and attention. At this point in the year, the work expectations do step up, but by ensuring I was organised I was able to manage the work load.

Joining The Sheffield SCITT has been the best decision I have made. This course fully enables you to immerse yourself in the classroom from day one! It's a fantastic feeling to have been recognised as the class teacher right from the beginning. A personal highlight of mine has to be when you see the children enthused in activities that you have planned. I have always felt supported throughout the year from great mentors and leaders, and I am ready to start teaching as a confident NQT!
