What our Trainees say

The Pathfinder ITT programme will provide you with a high quality, school centred training programme for the whole year.

But don't just take our word for it.  We have been training student teachers for a number of years now.  Let them tell you what they think...

I have very much enjoyed my ITT year. Pathfinder has provided valuable experiences and there have been some really great sessions conducted by all members of the team. Bev and Alison have been very supportive, and I feel they have given me a great amount of confidence moving forward. I’ve had two great placements with a fantastic team of mentors and class teachers too.

Both of my placements have been amazing! At both schools I’ve been made to feel welcome – just like any member of staff and I’ve enjoyed the whole experience of being a ‘teacher’. I Iook forward to starting my career.

The support from Pathfinder has been brilliant. I have felt fully guided and valued throughout. My placements have been well suited to my needs, providing me with a variety of Key Stage experiences and schools from different demographic areas.

The English sessions have been brilliant! They provided us with key curriculum information, whilst showing us how to apply this across both Key Stages in practical ways.

All of the Maths sessions were led by teachers who knew the subject in-depth. Curriculum content was covered, but we also had the opportunity to try out activities and put ourselves in the position of the learner, which was really helpful.
