Kelly: School Direct Distance
I had previously worked in a secondary school as a teaching assistant and cover supervisor and it was this experience that convinced me that I wanted to teach. I chose School Direct Distance as I consider it the most effective way to learn. I wanted to train with WCTSA as I know that Uffculme School has a reputation for delivering excellence and I knew I would get a great experience. I also believe that by training at Uffculme I will have an advantage when applying for jobs as Uffculme has a great reputation.
Helen: School Direct @Exeter
I love to learn and want to inspire young people to do the same. Schools are an interesting and inspirational place to work. I chose School Direct @Exeter as I wanted a school based training route but also time at University to study subject specific pedagogies and get more peer support. I chose to train with the WCTSA due to the great reputation of schools in this alliance.
Emma: School Direct Distance
I love my subject area and my work on summer camps for young people over the last four years cemented my desire to train to teach and inspire the young minds of today. School Direct Distance works for me because I am a practical learner and there is not a better place to learn than in the classroom with inspiring and passionate teachers. I am able to apply my online learning to hands-on classroom situations. I chose the WCTSA as having met the staff I knew that I would be supported. It is a great place to learn.
