Sue and Katy's Role
Sue and Katy’s role as the Secondary leads is to guide you through every step of your PGCE. They will be there from your interview day, at our Hub sessions, make visits during your placements and will be celebrating alongside you at your QTS graduation. They will be there to answer your questions, ensure you feel supported and find the best placement schools for you. During your placement time, Sue and Katy will come and observe your teaching and provide feedback to help you become the best teacher you can be! They will also lead your TIE Hub time as you receive CPD and training from guest lectures alongside other trainees on the journey with us.
Our secondary programme is designed to ensure that you accumulate the skills, knowledge, insight and experience you need for a successful career in secondary education. We offer a variety of secondary-based programmes in a variety of subjects, including some salaried places for shortage subjects (currently maths, physics and chemistry).
