What do those who have taken part in our Get into Teaching Experiences say about the programme?

We chat to Layla, who took part in our pre-teacher training programme at The University of Hull and is now training to be a teacher with YWTT.

Listen to this podcast and more.

I’ve officially finished my A Levels today and I just thought I’d send you an email just to say a massive thank you for all the opportunities YWTT has given me over the last 2/3 years.

Thank you for the masterclasses for the Yorkshire Wolds Teacher Training Experience, I have enjoyed every second of it. It’s been so eye-opening to see all the aspects of teaching and how each is implemented and planned. I am so excited to be able to implement all this knowledge that I have learned when I go into the teaching profession. I can’t wait to start university and become a teacher.
