What our students have to say...

Jen Wyatt

Testimonial

Why did you choose to train with BPD TTP?
I had already been accepted onto the Ringwood school teacher training course, but I had heard the scitt had a good reputation. I was hoping my placements would be local as I had three young children.

What experiences did you most benefit from?
Being at two different/ opposite schools, one private and small/ local, and one a normal large comp. Both with different aspects of art offered on the curriculum.

What are your future plans?
I currently work p/t at two schools. One local as an art teacher teaching primary and secondary art. The other in Southampton as a SEN art teacher. My plans are to use therapy in art to support those with mental health needs. I am doing an art therapy course for art teachers called ‘articulate’ in sept online. I would like to introduce more therapy with art and sen support into mainstream schools. Also still thinking about doing an MA in art therapy.

Why did you choose to train with BPD TTP?
Local to where I lived and offered the best learning experience.

What experiences did you most benefit from?
Pastoral exposure week that I got at my second placement really helped me focus in and build a good picture of future career progression. Also the mock interviews were really helpful

What are your future plans?
Stay in teaching. I will look to move schools after my ECT and hopefully move into a pastoral role focusing on behaviour and safeguarding.

I really enjoy teaching, I will start a PhD course and do some research on teaching differences between China and the UK. And hopefully I will be able to teach in a university in the future.

BPD SCITT offered what most providers don’t: diverse placements notably 2 longer term placements but also daily placements at diverse schools in the area and a more flexible approach to teacher training.

What experiences did you most benefit from?
Talks from external speakers, the general CT curriculum and the science subject sessions were particularly helpful.

Having the in person training sessions which gave me the opportunity to meet other trainees, share our experiences and make life long friends.
