What You Need to Know
My name is Sara Trickey and I am an experienced teacher of Business Studies & Computing as well as an experienced mentor and coach to colleagues entering the profession.
I began teaching in 2004 as a Business and ICT teacher. In 2006 I took on my first subject lead role and was the subject lead for ICT. In 2011, I then became a Head of Department for Computer Science and a Head of Faculty for Business, Computing and Media Studies. I am currently Head of Computing & Technology and an ECT mentor
I am a Member of the Chartered College of Teachers, I have completed my NPQSL, NPQSL and my MA Education, and I am passionate about teaching & learning. Currently, I am a part time Doctoral student completing my professional doctorate in education (EdD). I believe in research based practice and wherever possible, like to read around a topic to ensure that I have the research evidence to back up what I am saying.
Alongside these roles, I have had many secondments to SLT. I have been a lead member of a Teaching & Learning Team, I have led SMSC and Pupil Premium. I am dedicated to ensuring both trainees and ECTs get the best possible experience during their training and induction and hope to share some helpful tips and advice through this site.
I hope that we can build a community of trainees and ECTs so that we can all support each other in this journey of teaching.
