Making a success of your teaching placement is a vital part of achieving Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). With a focus on practical, this book provides essential guidance on how to translate the 'outstanding' criteria into practice. The authors break down the OfSTED criteria so that you can identify the skills and knowledge you need to make the most of your placements.
Packed with case studies, practical tasks and links to the (QTS) standards, the book is structured around:
- Developing professional knowledge
- How to be an outstanding teacher
- Classroom management
- Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
This book will help trainees make the difficult jump from 'good' to achieving an 'outstanding' on their placements.
'A comprehensive and thorough guide for Primary Education students....... an essential read' -
Richard Myers, Early Primary Education student
'This book will help trainee teachers optimise their progress, and move it towards 'outstanding', during the school based aspect of their training. It contains both points for reflection and case studies which emphasise the importance of 'brave' teaching where experimentation, creativity and flexibility are developed and employed in classroom settings' -
Anna Cox Course Leader, PGCE Early Years Education, University of Northampton
This is an essential book for trainee teachers to read if they want to move beyond meeting the standards. It encourages reflection and gives clear information about what outstanding looks like.
The primary PGCE trainees have found this a useful companion to their studies. The book is full of practical help and advice and trainees find it to be accessible and highly useful.
an absolute must for meeting the needs of high achieving students.
Beginning with a Glossary of Terms from 'Achievement' to 'Zone of Proximal Development', this book offers useful strategies for teaching and learning to be appreciated by trainee teachers, and experienced teachers looking for refreshment or affirmation.
This book focuses upon lots of key issues and will help us push the students towards improvements and the links made to research encourages more analysis of theory to coincide with the practical considerations which will, hopefully, make for creative teachers.
This book if heavily underpinned by the old QTS standards. Out programme is employment based so trainees are in school all the time, not just for placements.
I will be recommending this book to students I oversee on teaching placements who are keen to move their practice beyond 'good'. It is a useful and practical guide for this purpose.
Useful but the standards have beeb revised. Will it be updated?
Well structured and easy to link with practice.
