Training with the Preston PSA has been an incredibly rewarding experience - I have been supported throughout and trained by some of the most inspiring educators in the area. It has been fantastic to network with other trainees on the training days and I have formed connections that I’m sure will follow me through my career. The time I have spent training in outstanding placement schools has allowed me to develop and hone my skills as a teacher, receive expert mentorship and familiarise myself with the local teaching community. Following the School Direct route certainly provides you with the ‘best of both worlds’ when it comes to in-class experience and access to new ideas and teaching techniques on the conference days. I couldn’t recommend training with the Preston PSA enough - the support, experience and education that I have gained in the past year has been invaluable.
