A Warm Welcome to Catholic School Direct Trainees
The Cardinal in college

We were delighted to welcome trainees from the Wigan and West Lancashire Catholic School Direct Programme for a training session as part of their PGCE course.

The session on Assessment for Learning was delivered by the College’s Teaching, Learning and Assessment Leaders. Such opportunities form part of the trainees’ progress towards gaining Qualified Teacher Status, alongside classroom work experience and study at Liverpool Hope University.

SJR is the only sixth form college in the partnership, along with seven high schools in the area. The college is privileged to be part of this prestigious programme and excited to follow the trainees’ progression through the course, as they take their first steps into the teaching profession.

Hopefully, some of the trainees will be successful in finding employment at SJR and it certainly seems as though the college created a good impression. Evaluations were glowing; in fact, they could not have been better, with all 20 trainees giving every question full marks.
