Feedback from our trainees
Whitecross Hereford is a truly exceptional school to have for a placement. The professional mentor was proactive and highly supportive of us throughout our placement; he challenged us in our teaching and thinking. We were welcomed to the department and felt like valued members immediately. All staff were extremely helpful, answered our questions and offered their advice when necessary. The facilities and equipment available to us enabled us to teach engaging and exciting lessons. The professional studies programme is delivered by experts in each field, highly organised and supported us as trainee teachers. We were regularly provided with opportunities to develop our subject and pedagogical knowledge. Our subject mentor provided us with quality feedback on a regular basis and always challenged us to improve. We can’t recommend Whitecross enough. SC & PY - School Direct Trainees.
