How Placements Work: Secondary

Secondary Placements
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.

Please find below details of placement structures for each of our partner universities.
