Scholar Story

Before starting the FTS programme I wanted to make sure teaching was for me. So I sourced work experience from the secondary school I attended as a student, and I loved it. The FTS programme allowed me to develop my teaching skills whilst spending time in the classroom as well as through the study modules.

Whilst at Brunel university I also had the opportunity to participate in a summer internship at Rivers Academy West London, during this internship I was offered a permanent position after completing university.

I now work at Rivers Academy West London as an ITT, however this has not stopped me being provided with opportunities for progression, due to my strong foundations as a result of my previous experience and the FTS programme.

I currently hold the position of Mastery Lead, developing teaching for mastery within the maths department, as well as a whole school role as the Assistant Transition Lead where I am responsible for the transition of Year 6’s to Year 7.

Furthermore I have just been accepted on the NCETM, Secondary Mastery Specialist Training programme to continue to develop my teaching, my departments teaching and the teaching of mathematics at other schools.
