We work closely with local education authorities, schools, colleges and a wide range of educational organisations. From time to time we invite doctoral researchers, graduates from the programme and guest speakers from local schools and colleges to provide up-to-the-minute pedagogic and scholarly input. This helps us to ensure your studies are grounded in practice and the constantly changing world of education.
During this course, you spend around two-thirds of your time in schools, which helps to ensure that you start your teaching career with confidence. A school-based professional mentor and tutors from the University support you during your placements.
Whilst on placement, students are expected to carry out the normal school hours and engage in school life such as attending early morning/evening meetings, which will vary depending on the school.
