Jordan Rix

Primary SCITT Trainee

My name is:

Jordan Rix

I am training to be a:

Primary school teacher

I chose to be a teacher because:

I want to help children get the best out of themselves and create an environment in which children want to come to school and where everyone can be themselves.

The reason I chose to train with Manchester Nexus is:

Their SCITT programme has allowed me to gain immediate experience and be based the majority of the time in a school gaining experience.

The thing I find most challenging about the course is:

Is finding the time to do the PGCE assignment and planning all the lessons you have to teach at the same time.

But the way I am supported with that is:

We are granted plenty of opportunities to have time outside of the classroom to complete the work and there is always plenty of time to do the assignments, there is always time somewhere. 

The most enjoyable thing about the course is

Getting to work with the children and seeing the progress they make over the duration of your placement. I also enjoy the feeling you get when you notice you’re getting better at both being infront of the class and managing all the tiny things on a day-to-day basis.

The best thing about working with children

Getting to learn about their unique personalities and how everyone is so so different from one another but come together to create a very special classroom environment.

Join the movement and become part of a dynamic community dedicated to shaping the future of education.
