Trainees are supported throughout the programme by their YWTT subject or phase tutor and their mentor in school. These colleagues give weekly developmental feedback to support progress and at pertinent points in the year, trainees present progress portfolios.

At the end of the programme YWTT will make accurate and rigorous final summative assessment for the award of QTS in relation to the Teachers’ Standards. Trainees give their final Evidence Portfolio presentations to a YWTT assessor who has not been involved in their formative assessment.
