Year 2 Teacher, PE Advisor HBH, Primary School Direct Mentor
For the last two years Fiona has been involved with supporting and guiding trainees through their training. Acting as an additional point of reference and sounding board as well as facilitator, this is a role that she is passionate about. Trainees deserve to be supported individually in so many ways from the practical to the emotional and having someone outside of the school or university has often proved to be invaluable. Fiona makes regular visits to trainees and has contact at the CPD sessions alongside emailing to keep in touch.
Every trainee is unique and is supported individually to receive the best possible outcome for them.
