Trainee Teacher Comments
The Rowans AP Academy welcomes trainee teachers as part of Initial teacher training programmes. Successful partnerships benefit everyone; the school, the staff, the trainee teachers and the pupils. At The Rowans AP Academy we are delighted to welcome trainee teachers to spend time with us as part of their training programmes. The feedback is always overwhelmingly positive.
"I had an excellent experience at The Rowans. The school has an amazing sense of family and community. I observed incredible teaching and have learned some practical behaviour management strategies. Upon returning to mainstream next week I will consider examining behaviour policies further and see if they are actually effective in ensuring all pupils have access to quality education."
"My behaviour management has changed - how I would treat a pupil and how to find a solution."
"It was nice to see such a lovely 'family' unit with both staff and students."
"The awareness of things I should be looking for instead of just dismissing."
"All children deserve to have a connection with someone in their live and teachers are perfectly placed to provide this connection. The Rowans is truly inspiring."
"Empathy is key!"
"Behaviour is a form of communication, each communication (in any way) is constantly met through help and support."
"Understanding the child's home life to help and support empathy is constantly needed and key".
"I loved my time here. I actually think it should have been longer!"
