1st Attempt: Summative assessment of professional practice will be carried out in partnership with school based colleagues by a formal observation of practice, measured against aspects of the GTCS Standard for Registration (2013). During the course of this school experience students will be expected to provide written evidence of theoretical principles and perspectives exemplified through their practice. This will be presented as a working document compiled over the 5 week period in school and will be part of the overall assessment by school and university tutor.
Both the school and the tutor provide assessment proforma reports, the tutor based on an observation visit to the school and the school based on performance over the 5 weeks; therefore this is a 50/50 split. Both must be satisfactory for the placement to be a pass.
Resit: A 4 week resit placement opportunity will be provided at the start of the next academic session, to be completed successfully prior to the start of the year four programme of courses.
This is awarded as either satisfactory or unsatisfactory overall. Again, it is based on two assessment proforma reports, one by the school and one by the tutor observation visit. Both must be satisfactory for the placement to be a pass.
Formative assessment of professional practice will be carried out in partnership with school based colleagues.
Ongoing formative feedback opportunities will be provided through partnership with colleagues in the school experience placement.
A written summative report will be provided in partnership with school based colleagues.
