How This Course Is Assessed
The course is assessed through observations by your mentor, your external tutor and the senior managers of your school. These observations will take place in your host school and also during the six week placement in the second placement school. There will be three assignments to be completed, all of 4500 words each. The first two are due in February and May and the third, an active enquiry, runs for the whole year. Research is carried out in school and a classroom intervention is implemented which is informed by the reading and research. Finally a portfolio of evidence relating to the teaching standards must be compiled.
