Course Description

Aims - students will initially, observe and with support, begin to plan and implement learning and teaching within the P4-7 setting building responsibility, informed by reflective practice and professional dialogue; students will critically reflect on their own practice in relation to key features of an inclusive learning environment, focusing on the role of the teacher, stating considerations for future practice based on evidence of practice, policy and research.

Outcomes - observe classroom practice and further develop a knowledge of context for beginning to teach in the P4-7 setting; develop capacities and practise skills that enable them to prepare, plan and implement learning, teaching, assessment and evaluation of pupils' learning and their own professional practice in the P4-7 setting; investigate a range of wider aspects of school life through completion of school based study tasks in their own sector and participation in a school programme of wider aspects.
