  4. - Professional Attributes - Relationships with children and young people (Q1, Q2) - Rationale • Education is part of the process through which people acquire values and learn to apply those values in the attitudes they adopt and the ways they behave. Teachers recognise the role they play in this process, and demonstrate appropriate values, including a professional commitment to raising the educational achievement of all learners. Children and young people are more likely to thrive if they feel that they are valued and are confident that their teachers and their peers will support them. They are more likely to behave in a positive and constructive manner, and adopt appropriate values and attitudes, when they encounter such behaviours, values and attitudes in their teachers.

These notes will then serve as a useful basis for the weekly tutorial discussion. One copy of these sheets and the lesson observation report is to be kept by the mentor/subject school based tutor and one by the trainee in his/her teaching file.

  8. School of Education FACULTY OF EDUCATION, SOCIAL SCIENCES AND LAW New Assessment – EPS Two The assignment is designed to provide you with opportunities to pursue, in some depth, an area which is of interest to you through a small scale research project. The nature of the research will be decided by you in conjunction with school-based colleagues and your Link Tutor. Students are required to write a 3,000 word Research Report. The report will focus on an issue of professional interest to you and, perhaps, your placement school, for example, pupils with special needs, pupils’ socio-cultural backgrounds and achievement, teaching and learning styles. It will be based on planned observation of schools and classrooms and draw on the professional and research literature. The report will evidence understanding of policy and practice and the underlying theory related to the chosen area. Findings will be evaluated and form the basis for reflection and the identification of professional development needs You will define your own title for the report and describe the subject of the report in your own words in an abstract.

  9. School of Education FACULTY OF EDUCATION, SOCIAL SCIENCES AND LAW Title and Abstract : (FOR EXAMPLE ONLY) Title: ‘A Report on the Education of Children with Learning Difficulties – a critical review of policies and practices in (subject)’. Abstract: This report focuses on the ways in which (subject) teachers can meet the needs of children with learning difficulties in accessing the (subject) curriculum. In particular it focuses on the teaching of (XXXX) in KS3. It reports on current research and literature in this area, relating it to observations and experiences in school, and to learning theories, particularly those related to children with learning difficulties. The report provides examples of the ways in which lesson content and pedagogy can be modified to meet these children’s needs, and gives practical examples of and reflections on the ways in which I have attempted to do this. It also identifies the areas on which I, as a beginning teacher, will need to focus in future in order to develop my skills, knowledge and understanding in this area

School of Education FACULTY OF EDUCATION, SOCIAL SCIENCES AND LAW Partnership Development Schools – Phase 3 Invites to schools will go out shortly – including information on selection criteria, responsibilities and requirements of the project schools. Schools may get multiple nomination forms as they work with several providers – only one need be returned – but list ALL providers you work with. Providers will select applicants on the basis of the criteria for selection and pass these to the RMG for final selection there will be four secondary clusters of five schools to work on the following priorities : Maths placement capacity Science placement capacity ITT & CPD and Performance Management Schools facing challenging circumstances There will be an additional cluster working on evidence for the relationship between ITT and school improvement

  24. School of Education FACULTY OF EDUCATION, SOCIAL SCIENCES AND LAW OFSted – Secondary Action Plan Establishing systematic procedures for auditing and developing trainees’ subject knowledge: (a ) Develop procedures to ensure the systematic monitoring and tracking of students’ subject knowledge audits by tutors to facilitate improved subject knowledge development (Para 7) (b) Introduce systems to ensure that all subject mentors are aware of the subject knowledge audits so that they can use these to support trainees’ development of subject knowledge (Para 7). Ensure consistency in detail and target setting in written lesson observation feedback (Para 6) Developing greater consistency in the quality assurance role of the link tutor (Point for Consideration) Ensure that Link Tutors provide feedback to schools on the quality of training and support provided for students by Student Co-ordinators, Mentors and host teachers (Para 15). Revise/Develop systems for providing documentary records of Link Tutor feedback to support action by programme managers (Para 15).
