Carrying out my training at Swanland Primary School allowed me to observe outstanding teachers on a daily basis and this really helped me to progress during my training year. I have been very well supported and, after qualifying as a teacher, Swanland continued to help me develop both personally and professionally. I have been a qualified teacher for four years now and during this time I have had the chance to take on new roles in the school.

Wolds TSA consists of some of the best schools in the local area. As a trainee teacher on the School Direct programme, I completed weekly training within my host school, alongside specific TSA sessions. Sessions were led by a range of experienced practitioners, all having a different focus, which allowed me to develop a range of teaching strategies. The experience of the TSA sessions with other school direct trainees was invaluable, it allowed us to build our own support network along with share our experiences and good practice.
