I was one of the first trainees under the School Direct scheme in 2013. During my training, I was lost - we didn’t fit well into the world of initial teacher education, and no one seemed to care. We were guinea pigs. I had an awful start to my NQ year and was on the verge of leaving teaching.
Why I'm voting YES: we need a strong and united voice
This is my 41st year working in primary education. I took early retirement from a headship eight years ago, but after unexpectedly losing my husband shortly after, I returned to the classroom as a specialist numeracy intervention teacher.
