Within School settings, students will initially observe, and with support, begin to plan and implement learning and teaching, building on the responsibility undertaken in School Experience 1A. 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. Through observation of classroom practice, students will develop capacities and practise skills that enable them to prepare, plan, and implement learning, teaching, assessment and evaluation of learners.
