Why Host a Trainee?

From September 2022 we will be working with a number of schools who will each host trainees for the year.

Would you like to host a Schools Direct trainee for the academic year 2022-2023? What does it involve?

A trainee will be placed in school within your school or Academy and follow that school’s calendar.

If the trainee is with the Lincolnshire SCITT/ University of Lincoln…

The trainee will also follow a structured programme at the University of Lincoln one day a week alongside completing their placement within the base School/Academy. In the Spring Term, the trainee will then have the opportunity to experience a second school placement within Lincoln. The school will receive an alternative trainee as part of this process. The school gains the opportunity to develop and experience two trainees as an additional member of the staff team.

Please do not hesitate to contact the ITT lead Leann Lynch if you are interested in hosting a trainee : leann@leadtshub.co.uk.

If the trainee is with the University of Nottingham…

They will also follow a structured programme at the University of Nottingham alongside completing placements within Academy Trust schools. In addition, trainee teachers within our Academy Trust schools access our L.E.A.D. Equate Enrichment Programme alongside their school based mentors which enables dedicated and protected time for invaluable discussions and reflections, learning from experienced practitioners beginning their teacher training in L.E.A.D. Academy Trust school.

Would you like to host a PGCE trainee for the academic year 2022-2023?

Trainees will be placed within our academy trust for two placements. They will follow a structured programme at the University. In addition, PGCE students will access the L.E.A.D. Equate Enrichment programme alongside their school based mentors which enables dedicated and protected time for invaluable discussions and reflections, learning from experienced practitioners beginning their teacher training in L.E.A.D.
