Hear from one of our recently trained teachers - Mrs Hartfield. 

Mrs A Hartfield

I chose to apply for the Hampshire SCITT programme in the subject of English, and it was the best decision I could have ever made! The course was delivered with dedication, enthusiasm, and commitment to furthering my knowledge and skills to become a teacher. I changed careers a little later in life and was nervous making the transition; I did not need to be and knew a career in teaching was the right choice. The Hampshire SCITT worked alongside the University of Reading, and I was able to obtain my PGCE, as well as my QTS, through the programme.

I was fully supported by my mentors and actively engaged in weekly mentor meetings, utilising these sessions to reflect on my practice. The support provided by colleagues at Henry Beaufort, as well as the weekly training sessions with my peers, allowed me to further refine my classroom management skills, which positively impacted the learning experiences of my students.

I have no doubt, due to Henry Beaufort and the Hampshire SCITT, that I will positively affect current and future students. I was extremely lucky to be selected for this opportunity and I have not looked back!
