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. 

MA students only should organise two days in a secondary school, taking place during SE1A.  PGDE students will have experienced this during orientation; be aware of the work of other professionals as it relates to school pupils; demonstrate appropriate communication skills required for the different contexts of becoming a professional teacher in accordance with the GTCS Student Teacher Code; critically review and consolidate knowledge, skills and practices and thinking.
