What our Trainees Say

Some comments from the class of 2021...Rachel and Lisa

Our trainees from years gone by....

I chose Beckfoot as my training provider due to their excellent reputation in the education and training field. It was an easy decision once I had met the team and students. I felt confident and motivated at my interview and I knew I would be supported throughout my training and potentially my career within the trust.

The Trust have been hugely supportive and helpful in these first few weeks. The additional training has been exceptional and the experiences provided in these training sessions have been very beneficial. These initial weeks have not just lived up to but exceeded my expectation of what would be provided by Beckfoot and I can only see it continuing as I progress through the course. The support both in my placement school and by the Trust at large has been fantastic, really setting my mind at ease in the early stages of my journey to becoming an NQT.

I made my mind up after the interview morning that, if I was offered a place, I would choose Beckfoot Trust. I was impressed by the effort put into making the morning informative for me and the fact that senior staff, including the head, attended the interview.  I realised then that Beckfoot Trust was committed to providing a high standard of training and support during the ITT year, not least because they wanted trainees to be interested in applying to work at Trust schools when qualified.

"The best word I can use to describe training at Beckfoot is 'supportive'. I have been allowed to move at my own pace, with the backing of not only my mentor, but every single member of staff in the department and the wider school. They are an inspiration to watch at their work, and are never too busy to answer questions. I could not imagine a better environment in which to learn."
Naomi, English ITT 2018/19
"Training with Beckfoot has been a great experience. The staff are amazing and the support outstanding. I have been made to feel welcome from day one. I would recommend the experience to anyone who is looking to train to teach."
