At Teachit, we remember how it feels to be the new teacher on the block. The endless lesson planning, impenetrable assignments, unfathomable acronyms, labyrinthine corridors and arcane systems aren't as distant a memory as you might think.
With those days in mind, we've designed a place for English trainees and NQTs to call their own. Whatever route you're taking: Teach First, School Direct, SCITT or a PGCE, you'll find inspiration, ideas and even occasional solace.
Good luck, we're thinking of you!
Our thanks go to Lorna Smith and Harry Dodds, who inspired us to create the Training Ground and helped with its initial development.
