Mohammad Khan

Secondary SCITT Trainee

My name is:

Mohammad Khan

I am trained to be a:

Science teacher at a secondary

I chose to be a teacher because:

I wanted to allow children to explore and learn about complex concepts and be able to understand them. I wanted to be the teacher that allows children to enjoy what they are learning and see how it fits in their everyday life and how they can use what they have learnt to succeed and go further.

The reason I chose to train with Manchester Nexus is:

As I was working prior to training as a teacher it allowed me to bridge that gap really well.The SCITT programme has allowed me to gain immediate experience in a school setting and be based most of the time in a school. This has allowed me to get a better understanding of what is required as a teacher and build better relationships with staff and students.

The thing I find most challenging about the course is:

Prioritising your time. Time needs to be effectively managed to make sure that lessons are planned, assignments are completed and other tasks related to the course are completed.

But the way I am supported with that is:

The mentors are easily contactable and happy to help and provide support. Support is granted by the SCITT and from mentors at the placement school which means a support network is available to make sure any obstacle can be overcome.

The most enjoyable thing about the course was:

Being able to see the progress that you have made as a teacher. It is a really rewarding journey and the feedback, support and hard work that you have put in will make you a better teacher and you can see how much you have improved as the course has progressed.

The best thing about working with children

Every child is unique and being able to get to know them and how they learn is incredibly rewarding. That moment when children are able to understand concepts that they found difficult at first is priceless.
