Mrs Ide Wise joined Golcar J, I and N as a KS2 Initial Teacher Trainee with the Green Light Alliance.

Ide was offered a role as a class teacher at a school in Halifax, long before her course finished. For her mini-teacher, as part of the interview process, she took along resources made at a training session and she definitely thinks that this helped her to secure her first teaching post.  Read her story ……

“Throughout my training I felt very well supported by Green Light both from the university and Green Light tutors.

I loved the fact that the training was delivered by teachers who were still teaching in schools. They didn't just share their subject knowledge they also shared a lot of anecdotal classroom evidence which was extremely useful. I was also impressed with the amount and variety of school experience they provided.

As a mum of a young child I feel they took this into consideration when arranging my placements which really helped with my work life balance. 

Furthermore, they were very helpful in helping us secure teaching positions - informing us about job vacancies, providing us with help with the applications and writing references. 

I would highly recommend training with Green Light."
