New 2017 School Direct Trainees

A warm welcome!!!

We were delighted to meet with our 32 School Direct trainees who are due to start in our schools in September. 

The event was well attended by both the trainees and their mentors and all were engaged with the activities.

I particularly enjoyed the comment, from a mentor, who when asked to liken herself to a cartoon character, as part of the ice breaker activity, she responded:

'Popeye, as I am constantly juggling cans of spinach'

The feedback from the event was extremely positive and all the staff at EKLA are looking forward to supporting our trainees and mentors during the next academic year.

To all our Trainees: Congratulations on your successful application and here's to a fantastic year!
