Course Description

- Developing teaching (Block A - 4 weeks) - Transition to teaching (Block B - 5 weeks)

In secondary, the focus will normally be on S1-3. Students are expected to quickly take on a timetable with 60% of the normal teaching load. Classroom Practice is normally carried out in each of the subjects being taken, with each subject normally playing an equal part. In Block B students undertake a development task for the subject department to equalise their teaching load.

School based study includes a programme of Wider Aspects of School and School Based Enquiry Tasks which follow up aspects of the campus based professional studies programme.
