Trainees share their training experiences!


I have had a great experience so far. This term has been a massive learning curve for me and I have met great people through my training and I hope it continues. Emma has been really supportive and I couldn’t have asked for a better coordinator. My mentor has motivated me throughout this process and the department has been a great place to start my teacher training. The Yorkshire Rose Teaching Alliance is amazing at placing you in schools that will help and support you with teacher training.

I have enjoyed being in the art department as they have shown and helped me explore my love for art. The students are very creative and are a joy to work with. I couldn’t have asked for a better 1st placement for my teacher training. The Yorkshire Rose Teaching alliance is so support with my needs and it meets my expectations.

Maggie Macaulay, Art trainee at BGHS.

My time at BGHS has been a memorable one. I have found working in a classroom very enjoyable, challenging and rewarding. My experience within this placement has allowed me to use many of my existing skills as well as develop new ones such as behaviour management. Both my mentor and Emma have been very supportive in ensuring that I have had a smooth transition into this career.
