Please note this module descriptor is indicative of the structure of this course and may be subject to change.
This module aims to provide opportunities for students to enhance specific areas of their teaching skills. By reflecting upon progress during PG6001 and 6002and other PG modules, and through discussion with mentors and Link Tutors, students will set targets for PG6003 which will enhance specific areas of their teaching skills; for example, the student may develop their subject strength, explore innovative teaching and learning approaches, gain experience of a different age phase, or focus on a specific area of the Teachers’ Standards. Through this process, students will be able to personalise their learning priorities; PG6003 is aimed at meeting individual needs. Students will undertake a 5-week School Experience placement in a partnership school/setting and will be expected to undertake planned teaching for approximately 75% of the teaching week during at least the final 2 weeks of their placement.
Through negotiation with the school mentor, the student will seek opportunities to work in a creative, imaginative or innovative way and further develop personal and professional skills related to their individual identified needs. Their learning will be structured through a combination of focused observations and teaching activities. Students are required to evaluate their own teaching skills and the impact they have upon pupil learning. They are required to engage in professional dialogue with colleagues in school, to reflect upon discussions and set challenging targets for their own professional development.
