OUR PROGRAMME

What will the course look like?
Starting on the first day of the Autumn Term, you will be based in your "home" school.  You will be seen as a member of staff, quickly appreciating the workplace and seeing theory put into practice every day.  You will undertake training by staff in your "home" school as well as workshops and other activities with student teachers from across our Alliance of Schools.

When you are ready, you will start to take responsibility to deliver parts of lessons on your own.   The ITT programme will build your confidence and subject knowledge and give you the necessary skills to become an effective classroom practitioner.  As you become more confident and competent you will take on greater responsibility until you are teaching full lessons.
How many school placements will there be?
You are required to teach in 2 schools during the course of the year.   The first placement (Autumn) and the third placement (Summer) are usually in the same school.   In the Spring term you wills pend time teaching in another school.  Our placement strategy is aimed at giving you the best preparation possible for your teaching career.  During the programme you will spend time in a variety of schools and contexts including mainstream schools, special schools, Pupil Referral Units (PRU), and the Medical Needs Teaching Service.

What kind of assessments are there for Secondary?
You will need to demonstrate that you meet the Teachers' Standards to achieve QTS.  You will also complete 3 academic assignments in order to achieve a PGCE.  These assignments are focused on your understanding of how children learn, your specialist subject knoweldge and your vision for education.

What support will I receive?
Throughout your year you will be supported by a well-trained mentor, the primary and secondary lead mentors and colleagues from Bradford College.
