Yorkshire Wolds Teacher Training works in partnership with over 70 schools across the East Riding of Yorkshire, Hull and Northern Lincolnshire. We have well over a hundred expert mentors in our partner schools so committed to developing the next generation of great teachers that 88% of them have voluntarily completed a coaching & mentoring qualification in addition to the ongoing mentor training.
We have a huge range of diversity across our partnership, with coastal, rural, urban, special schools and alternative provision. Our partner schools serve diverse communities of children giving our trainees the opportunity to develop a deep understanding of the regional educational landscape. Some of our schools are tiny rural primary schools, others are big junior or infants schools. All our secondary trainees will undertake at least one placement in an 11-18 school, giving them the opportunity to experience post sixteen teaching.
Trainees are given the opportunity to place possible placement schools in order of their preference and we understand that the appropriate match between trainee and school mentor is crucial to maximise your development. Therefore, we use your preferences, your geographical location and information collated from application and interview processes to carefully match you to your mentor and host school.
Trainees will undertake two teaching placements in diverse schools, our priority is to secure placements that work for you. In addition to considering your training needs when planning placements we will ask you to identify considerations relating to commuting distances and family needs. The programme is designed to support you develop through a range of different placement experiences, including intensive training and practice and immersion days in different school settings. You will also have the opportunity to undertake an elective placement in a setting of your choice allowing you to broaden and deepen your understanding of the educational landscape.
