PGCE – Final Placement 

Dates: 27th March - 23rd June 2023; excluding Easter and May half term school closures

Placement Setting: KS1 or KS2

Amount Payable to School: £1000 per pair of students

This is a ten-week block placement including one preparation week and nine assessed weeks. Students will be paired unless the host school has specifically requested an individual placement. If paired, students will work in a ‘job share’ capacity to cover all aspects of teaching and learning over the course of the placement. The placement will enable students to embed critical depth into their practice and understanding and will be their final placement prior to their ECT years.

During the placement, students are assessed each week through a Weekly Review of Progress meeting held with their school-based mentor (this could be the class teacher or school mentor) to review their progress and to agree on two SMART targets. Each student is also allocated a link tutor from the university who will join a weekly review meeting at the school, which may include a lesson observation and feedback with the teacher/mentor.

Schools are required to submit an end of placement report, as well as brief phonics and maths reports

Amount Payable to School: £1000 per pair of students

This is a ten-week block placement including one preparation week, eight assessed weeks and a final week which can be used for consolidation or to allow students additional opportunities across the school; students may be paired throughout. The experience will be focused around assessment and pupil progress to enable students to embed critical depth into their practice and understanding. If paired, students will work in a ‘job share’ capacity to cover all aspects of teaching and learning over the course of the placement. The placement will enable students to embed critical depth into their practice and understanding and will be their final placement prior to their ECT year. 

During the placement, students are observed once each week and a weekly meeting is held with their school-based mentor (this could be the class teacher or school mentor) to review their progress and set agreed targets against the standards. Each student is allocated a link tutor from the university who visits the school placement on three separate occasions (two of which are to carry out a joint lesson observation with the students’ school based mentor).
