First of all i want to say thank you so much for creating this programme, i have no doubt in my mind that you have helps, not only myself, but also hundreds of other students/ teenagers through this programme of yours- especially for me this was so beneficial since actual work experience was cancelled and i could get any sort of help, advice, experience, etc due to the whole covid 19 out break. So thank you again, i grately appreciate all your hard work, and i will make sure to share this platform to others and show my gratitude. Also thanks for selecting me to participate- thank you so much.

Thank you for creating this amazing programme. I have done a few programmes totally unrelated to teaching but this one has been my absolute favourite. I have gained so much more information and feel more confident about the path I should take to where I really want to go. It is definitely more interesting and helpful than just researching information and writing down. Since I am a kinesthetic learner, the activities part of the programme was my favourite as it really helped me absorb of the knowledge I have learned from this so thank you so much :)

This programme really gave me a wider understanding of the world of teaching as I did not realise there was a lot of hard work that goes into the lessons before they are even taught. It also showed me how to plan around different children, the importance of safeguarding and certain aspects like a DBS check that, before this programme, I was unaware you needed before teaching. This work experience has encouraged me to still have the desire to become a teacher as it has shown me many benefits that the job holds.
