Yorkshire Inclusive TSA is training the next generation of outstanding teachers for the Leeds area. We are committed to providing the highest standard of education and we want to recruit student teachers who share the same commitment. Our current cohort of student teachers is training to teach in primary and secondary in both mainstream and special school settings.
You’re in school from the first day of term, seen as a staff member by everyone. You’re in one school four days a week to the end of the school year, spending Spring half term at a contrasting school. One day a week you’ll be at our central venue alongside other trainees, sharing and learning from each other’s experiences. Our model enables you to experience a full year in school and fully appreciate the demands/rewards that brings.
Working alongside your mentor, you’ll identify your ongoing level of knowledge, skills and experience and from that draw up and work continuously on a training plan. This will involve observing experienced teachers and training activities leading to delivering whole class.
Your core training is extremely diverse from theoretical input to observing excellent practice. We support our trainees throughout their training year, enabling them to be fully prepared for teaching during their training and beyond.
You will benefit from 10 Subject Knowledge days, giving you the opportunity to further enhance your subject knowledge. By the end of the training year you will be fully equipped to deliver your subject from Year 7 to 11 including the GCSE specification.
In order to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) you have to be judged competent against the Teacher Standards.
- Half-termly Tutor visit reports
- 3 termly reports
- 2nd placement report
- 3 Reflection Points (training activities which focus on a group of standards feeding into 2 Assignments)
We work hard to create a reduced workload approach to assessment, basing many of our judgements on professional dialogue - not paper trails. Assessment is based upon day-to-day practice and should complement your teaching and reduce the amount of additional work required.
