PGCE – Final Placement 

Dates: 28th Mar - 17th June 2022; excluding Easter and May half term school closures

Placement Setting: KS1 or KS2

Amount Payable to School: £720 per pair of students

This is a nine-week block placement including one preparation week and  eight 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 NQT year.

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 set two agreed 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

 

PGCE EP – Final Placement

Dates: 4th Apr - 24th June 2022

Placement Setting: EYFS or KS1

Amount Payable to School: £720 per pair of students

This is a nine-week block placement including one preparation week, seven 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 NQT 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).
