How Placements Work


Phase A comprises 8 weeks of school based experience. Every trainee maintains a Professional Development Record. This is where you will log evidence of your progress. Students will be expected to write entries in a reflective journal to record and reflect on key moments and critical incidents in theri professional development.
Phase B begins and a substantial period of teaching experience including a subject project, other activities and finally a reduced teaching load, before a welcome summer break!

In school, your subject teaching will be closely monitored and supported by mentors in the faculty. A senior member of staff, the ITT co-ordinator, holds overall responsibility for the training of trainee teachers, including tutorials and the provision of opportunities for professional development and whole school concerns – such as the importance and use of technology in the classroom to facilitate learning and reduce workload.
