Teacher Training

What did our 2019/20 Trainees Say?

A massive thank you. I cannot express enough just how thankful I am that my path led me to Connect. Your commitment to get to know each and every one of your trainees, ensuring that we feel safe, secure and empowered is overwhelming. The words of encouragement, praise and humour you have provided have, without a doubt, made this year both enjoyable and achievable. I have learnt so much and come a very long way, I will be forever grateful! “

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my training through Connect. It has been fantastic having such a supportive team behind me which want to see you succeed. When I had the ‘wobble’ at the beginning of the year, I honestly do not believe I would have got through that without the support on hand. The fact I felt confident and safe enough to be able to discuss things during such a difficult time is proof of the personal support that is given, something that I do not think you would get through other providers”

“I have learnt things about myself across this year and I can really say I feel like a different person to the one who arrived in September and I’m really grateful for all of the good times as well as the more difficult times as I wouldn’t be who I am today without them. I have learnt a lot from this course, my mentor and my tutors and I know I will use all of this in my career. ”

“I would also like to use this reflection to pass on my thanks to Connect, my Programme Tutor and to my School Based Mentor for their support both professionally and personally throughout my training year. My success has been down to fantastic collaboration and people that have a passion to teach. I honestly do not believe I would have found the experience as rewarding if I had chosen to train with another provider.”
