Course overview

I have loved my school placement so far, the staff are very friendly and have welcomed me into the team and supported me really well.

I have enjoyed hearing from guest speakers as part of the course - previous alumni, experienced teachers and charity representatives - as this has equipped me with advice from those in schools or working with young people on a daily basis. It is also interesting to hear different peoples' experiences of training to teach.
