What our ITTs have said about us? 

Why has Beauchamps been a good place to train?

    • “Beauchamps is an amazing school with a great ethos – it is a supportive community as everyone has been willing to help me develop my teaching practice.”
    • “As a trainee I was given a warm welcome from everyone in the school and was treated as part of the team immediately.”
    • “Beauchamps has the most supportive staff – I have received invaluable advice from colleagues throughout my placement and plenty of opportunity to talk to other ECTs in the school.”
    • “The school is well organised, well led and has given me a great insight into the life and responsibilities of a teacher.”

Mentors – what makes our mentors special?

    • “I couldn’t have done without them. The support has been awesome – they have given me confidence that I can teach.”
    • “My mentors were able to use their vast experience to help me develop behaviour management strategies and professional aspects and responsibilities of being a teacher.”
    • “My mentors provided invaluable feedback on improvements to lesson planning and delivery. They helped me develop my teaching practice and giving me confidence and resilience.”
    • “My ITT Coordinator looked after my wellbeing and helped to support me when I was struggling with work/life balance.”

CPD Programme for ITTs

    • “Unlike my other placement, the ITT Coordinator ran a weekly ITT session at the same time every week. It gave me a consistent safe and supportive space during my training to discuss problems and issues and try and find solutions.”
    • “These weekly sessions helped me build relationships with the other ITTs and gave me that support network.”
    • “The sessions were very helpful for familiarising myself with school and staff. It introduced me to the relevant staff member, so I knew who to go to if I had a specific question – helped me feel part of the school community.”
    • “I found the CPD sessions very helpful as it helped me put theory into practice. Often sessions would link directly with what I had learnt with my provider that week or link to a specific assignment we had been set. It was also very helpful to understand school policies and standards of work expected.”
