Teacher Training at Wigton Moor
Through partnership and collaboration with Red Kite and Leeds Trinity University, we train and support student teachers who are undertaking a range of courses, including Undergraduate Degrees and Post Graduate Certificates in Education.
Our aim is to provide our trainees with the individual support and guidance they need to demonstrate their competence across the Teaching Standards, in order to achieve QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) at the end of their course.
Our experienced Student Mentor and other class teachers work very closely with our trainees to help them to practise and develop their teaching skills, to understand how pupils learn and progress and to establish a thorough knowledge of National Curriculum objectives.
The support we provide takes the form of:
Our trainees are encouraged to immerse themselves in all aspects of school life, including attending staff training, planning sessions, extra-curricular events and parent consultation evenings.
At Wigton Moor, we pride ourselves on the support and nurture we are able to provide our teachers of the future. Our trainees finish their placements feeling confident and ready to progress onto teaching their own classes and completing their NQT (Newly Qualified Teacher) years. Many keep in touch to let us know how they are doing, which is lovely.
