In the words of an ex-trainee . . .

This is an extract from an email that one of our former Secondary trainees sent us, to let us know how he was getting on as a Newly Qualified Teacher:

“The high expectations you have instilled into me are still present and I try to make sure everybody else keeps up to the same high expectations.”

“My confidence has really grown and whilst behaviour can be tough to handle and days can be long and hard – I’m still reminded that I can become a really good teacher.”

“I compare my training with trainees who go through the university route and I can safely assure you DRAFTTS* sounds a lot better and a lot more useful. I walked out of that knowing that I was given the tools to begin teaching and have since flourished. A lot of other NQTs don’t feel the same when starting.”

That’s why he applied for schools-based ITT in Doncaster!
