Welcome from the new Director
Having trained with Mid Essex ITT in 2007, I feel that this has given me a solid grounding on which to build a successful teaching career. Over the course of the last 11 years, I have had many exciting opportunities and roles.
I started my career based in the English department at Notley High School & Braintree Sixth Form where I was then promoted to a Lead Teacher. This experience afforded me with the opportunity to become a Head of Year where I was fortunate enough to watch the most wonderful year group of students become independent, talented and ambitious young adults. During this time, I also completed my Masters in Educational Research. This has made me see the importance of reflecting on your own practice throughout your career, not just during your formative years. After seeing my year group leave, I became Assistant Headtecaher and the Head of Braintree Sixth Form, which has now lead me to this role.
I feel extremely fortunate to be in a position by which by I can play a part in developing our future teachers. I am excited to work with the talented and experienced team already in place at Mid Essex ITT and look forward to building on the success of the previous Programme Manager. I am joining Mid Essex ITT at an exciting time following our recent outstanding Ofsted report and I also look forward to further developing relationships with the Mid Essex ITT partnership schools.
There has never been a more exciting time to step in to the world of teaching and I can't think of a better place to train than with Mid Essex ITT and their plethora of outstanding host schools.
