BA Second Year – Intermediate Placement and BR@P intervention

Dates: 10th Jan to 18th Mar 2022 (8 weeks)

Placement Setting: EYFS, KS1 or KS2

Amount Payable to School: £640 per pair of students 

At the end of their first year of training, students will have selected an age phase (3-7 years or 7-11 years) to specialise in for the remainder of the programme. This is an eight-week teaching opportunity in a paired placement within their chosen age phase. Students will be teaching a 50% timetable for eight weeks. This is structured as follows: 

2 weeks non-assessed (10 - 21 January 2022)

1 week call back at University (w/c 24 January 2022) 

6 weeks assessed (31 January - 18 March 2022) 

Usually, two students are placed in the same class and share the planning and delivery of lessons. Team-teaching is encouraged on this placement. During this placement, the emphasis is on students developing an understanding of effective behaviour management, as well as beginning to develop their teaching skills, particularly in the core subjects. 

Students will require a member of staff to be assigned as a mentor who will monitor progress via a weekly review of progress meeting and give regular feedback both verbal and written after lesson observations. Schools are required to submit an end of placement report, as well as brief phonics and maths reports. 

Integrated into this placement, the students will carry out  Boosting Reading @ Primary (BR@P) in KS1 or LKS2 (not suitable for EYFS or UKS2)
