Paul Taylor - Teacher of Food Preparation Nutrition, Dereham Neatherd High School

How did you find studying at Norfolk Teacher Training Centre?

It has been brilliant! Having 4 days in school and 1 day theory really made a big difference to my teaching practice and gave a real insight into the amount of work that will be required in the job.

How did Norfolk Teacher Training Centre support your progression into your current role?

I had two fantastic placement schools, including the school that I am now employed at, that were set up by NTTC.

I had amazing mentors who were trained in how to look after me during the course. They gave me great guidance and support throughout, and answers to any questions I’ve had were only an email or text away.

What are your plans for the future?

I plan to teach at Dereham Neatherd High School for as long as I possibly can and enjoy going through my NQT year before officially becoming a teacher.
