Isabelle Brice, School Sport Coordinator Apprenticeship through Links School Sports Partnership
Coming from a different school to Sheffield Springs Academy Sixth Form was a huge step as I knew I wouldn’t know anyone. I found that the staff were really friendly and so were the students which I found really settling for me.
Staff were really supportive and helped me through my coursework and with progression opportunities, including making applications to university, apprenticeships and employment.
Sixth Form offered me lots of extra-curricular opportunities’ like running the Year 8 girls football team and the chance to get actively involved in school productions.
I really did enjoy my two years at Springs.
I’m currently undertaking a School Sports Coordinator apprenticeship on a gap year, and hopefully will then progress on to university to become a PE teacher.
Since Joining Sheffield Springs over two years ago I have completed a number of courses that have helped me to develop professionally.
I started at Springs as a teaching assistant but applied for the HLTA position. At the time I didn’t have the HLTA qualification so the school paid for me to complete the course. As well as completing my HLTA I have also completed the EAL champions course, the parenting puzzle course, coaching and mentoring NVQ and will shortly be undertaking a phonics course.
I am looking forward to developing my career at Springs and hope to start a Science SCITT next year.
