INITIAL TEACHER TRAINING

The photographs show some of the 48 trainees who have carried out their first or second semester placements here at Woodchurch during the academic year 2011-2012.

This year Woodchurch has worked in partnership with Liverpool Hope University, the University of Chester, Liverpool John Moores University, the Open University and with the Cheshire and Merseyside GTP Consortium, to provide a high quality training experience for our future teachers. Woodchurch High School is also a hub-school for the ‘elearnITT’ programme validated by Hibernia College UK.

This academic year as well as working with our teaching staff our trainees were given the opportunity to work alongside our team of experienced Teaching Assistants, to further enhance their training experience at the school. In addition Woodchurch has continued to host the sessions for the WITT consortium when as many as 110 trainees from our partner schools in Wirral come together for a professional training session.

As is often the case some of our trainee teachers take the opportunity to apply for teaching posts at Woodchurch when they have completed their course. This year we will welcome back Miss Smith in English who will be joining our teaching staff at the beginning of the new academic year in September 2012.
