Pre-course Support

As soon as an applicant accepts a conditional offer from the White Rose Alliance, the journey begins & they are part of the White Rose Alliance.

The WRA aim to make all trainees feel as welcome as possible & ensure that they understand what is required of them at all times.

For those applying early in the recruitment cycle, there can be quite a gap before the start of the course & therefore it is important that regular contact is maintained. We keep in touch with our next cohort through a series of newsletters offering advice, information & guidance with recommendations of actions to be taken or preparation to be done. Trainees are also encouraged to arrange further school experience with us during the pre-course period as necessary.

Our next cohort are invited to attend 2 pre-course events at King James´s School - a Pre-Induction Morning in May & WRA Induction Part 1 in July. These events aim to ensure our trainees feel fully prepared & equipped to make the best possible start to their course in September.  Whilst the new cohort receive essential information & are able to chat with staff & former & current trainees, it is also an invaluable opportunity for the new trainees to meet each other before the start of the course. Former trainees have highlighted how beneficial this experience was for them in terms of removing one of the most common pre-course concerns.

Before the start of the course (generally in July), trainees are invited to an orientation day visit in their first placement school.

During the pre-course period, WRA staff are always available to provide support & are happy to respond to queries & concerns at any time.
