ILKLEY GRAMMAR SCHOOL
ENGLISH NQT 2018/19
My training year prepared me for life as an NQT in so many ways. My placements were organised to be truly complementary, so everything was covered in a personal way.
I got my job in the school where I did my first placement. I had lots of help with looking for and applying for jobs, including writing my application and practicing interview techniques.
The best thing about my training with Red Kite was the constant support and positivity from everyone linked to my programme, giving me confidence, and opportunities to reflect on what was going well and where I needed to focus. I felt part of a supportive learning community; I was never worried as there was always someone to advise and support me. I thoroughly enjoyed my training year and recommended the programme to a friend, who started training with Red Kite this autumn.
