After nearly 14 years working as an Operations Manager for a large outsourcing company Mark decided embark on a career change to go into Primary School teaching. After a number of weeks volunteering at Whitehall Park School, Mark managed to secure a place on the SCITTELS (School Centred Initial Teacher Training East London Schools) teacher training course.
With Nicola Wright as mentor Mark has successfully completed his training year with SCITTELS at the helm of Jasmine class. Mark will now lead Jasmine class once again as an NQT (Newly Qualified Teacher) consolidating his training and embarking on another successful year.
Mark is super excited about being in Year 1 again and says “What a wonderful year I’ve had. The team, here at Whitehall Park School, have been incredible in their flexibility, generosity and expertise in helping me to complete my course. I could not think of a better environment to have qualified as a teacher and I am loving the experience! Looking ahead to the new school year we clearly have further exciting times ahead with our new school building and the amazing opportunities that arise from being in a new and growing school.”
