4Previous experience Students on PGCE Have been involved in aa pre-programme experience of two weeks working with individuals or small groupsa 6 week block placement in school during the Autumn term. Most students were paired
5Previous experience 3 year route (accelerated route) Students have been selected for this route according to request and academic achievement. They followed the same first year as studnets on a four year route but have adjusted 2nd and 3rd years. They:Have been involved in a school placement for5 serial visits and 2 weeks in year 1 teaching individuals or small groups2 serial visits and 6 weeks in year 2, teaching 60% whole class lessons by end of practice.Experienced other school related activities in relation to taught modules e.g. LPL, Special SubjectArranged self directed placements to support their professional development
6All studentsHaveattended a range of curriculum and professional modulescompleted a number of assignments linking theory with practicecollected evidence against the full range of Standardswritten a pre – SE action plan with targets to support progress
7Expectations PGCE:pp5-7 BA: pp 7-10 Starting from the school context and individual action plans:That students progressively take on the responsibility for planning and teaching a programme covering the full primary curriculum for the whole class, normally teaching 70% of the timetable by the end of week 370% whole class teaching10% non-contact time20% to be used flexibly e.g. collaborative PPA time, observation, teaching groups in other year groups/subjects
8Preliminary visitsAll students should contact the school in writing to introduce themselves in advance of their visits.begin to establish relationshipsgather informationarrange times for discussion with the teacher tutoridentify pupils for profiling and start gathering dataagree annotated planning with the teacher tutor prior to link tutor file check and start of the blockestablish themselves from the start as a teacher through behaving in a professional manner.

10During the placement Transition, sustain, consolidate, extend PGCE page 8, 14-16BA pp 11-22Whole school context: other teachers, subjects
11Non-contact time activities include: observation in another colleague’s classdeveloping knowledge about and expertise with the ICT provision and practice in the schoolcollecting, developing and organising resources for teaching and learning, including the preparation of classroom displaygaining experience of teaching subjects in which they are in need of greater experience, e.g. foundation subjects or sciencefollowing up personal targets e.g. profile pupils, ERP
12StandardsStudents are expected to collect evidence against all Standards.Developing understanding of types of evidence. There may not always be evidence through practice; a Standard may have little evidence due to types of experiences but sufficient to demonstrate it is met.Increased rigour in tracking evidence, with cross referencing to sourceSufficient evidence for each Standard by the end of the SE. Success may not be evident at the start.ALL Standards graded at 3 or above, by the end of the SE.
13Making a Judgement What sort of evidence do you use to: make a judgement?identify targets?
14Making a Judgement Using the Grading Criteria and setting targets Observing a lesson
15Dreyfus Model: Five Stages of Skill Acquisition NoviceAdvanced BeginnerCompetenceProficiencyExpertise
16Target settingAn individual will be at the same time expert with respect to certain types of problems in an area of skill but less skilled in respect to others
17Cause for Concern Progress of Student Targets which have been set are repeatedly not being metLack of progress towards meeting the required QTS StandardsA lack of professionalism and commitment on the part of the studentLevels of preparation and planning are resulting in pupils under-achievementOther concernsThe nature of the placement has changedThe student is unable to meet the learning outcomes for the placement because of personal or medical reasonsThe trainee expresses concern about the level of support
18Link Tutor observes an unsatisfactory lesson Student progress has been causing concern and paperwork reflects a Grade 3/ 4.Link Tutor observes an unsatisfactory lessonProgress so far is good. Clear targets set for improvement in discussion with student.Discussion with Teacher Tutor/Link Tutor and decision is made to issue Cause for Concern against specific standards.Partnership Office is informed of decision and a Cause for Concern letter is issued and faxed to the school.Copy to PDT, RM/PL & ITE Administrator for file.Link Tutor or Teacher Tutor discuss outcome with student. Student may/may not be advised to go home early that day.
19Student meets with Partnership Manager. Student talks through issues with PM and creates initial Action Plan.Student returns to school with expectation of rapid progress.Student makes progress & continues practice to conclusion.Teacher Tutor raises concerns and in discussion with Link Tutor a moderation visit is agreed.Moderation visitClear progress made & student continues practice to conclusion.Decision is made to finish the practice. Student may remain in a negotiated role or leave the school. Student meets with PM.
20Q: Do I have to wait until a Link Tutor visit before raising any concerns? A: No. It’s important that you talk through any questions or queries that you have as soon as they arise. The student’s paperwork should reflect your concerns.Q: Is it possible to ask for an earlier Link Tutor visit?A: Yes. If the above solution does not support the student’s progress, then you may wish to ask the Link Tutor to bring forward their next visit.
21Q: What is a moderation visit? A: Following on from the Cause for Concern letter, if progress has not been made against the agreed targets then a moderation visit will be organised. This is a visit from a named tutor who will look at the student’s paperwork, observe a 30-minute lesson, speak to the Teacher Tutor and speak to the student. The moderator will then report their findings to the student and will make a recommendation to the Exam Board that the student:a) has the potential to meet the standards for QTS by the end of the placement,b) has the potential to meet the standards for QTS by the end of an extended placement. An extended placement can only take place within appropriate parts of the school’s and university’s calendars, and only if the placement school agrees to support the extension.c) is presenting a failing profile at this point and would be unable to meet the standards required for this placement.
22Q: What if the judgement is that the student is failing? A: If the school is in agreement, the student may continue in the placement in a renegotiated role in order to support professional development and to work towards action points identified as part of the failing profile.Alternatively, the student withdraws from the placement and makes an appointment with PM or PL to discuss next steps.In either case students are required to draw up a detailed action plan following a failed placement and to demonstrate progress against it prior to attempting a resit.
23Summative Assessment Grading Criteria The final report Contribution to student’s reference
24Record of Student assessment Provide grade for each Standard (unless ‘greyed out’): If a 4, the student has failedComplete overall grade for each section (this needs to be 3 or above to pass the full SE)In Comments section identify strengths and targets. Targets may be carried forward to CEDP.
25Final Section will contribute to the students reference Positive attributes, including those not directly linked to the Standards3-6 developmental points to inform CEDPSignProvide student with a copy for PDPSend with student or directly to POComplete a SE evaluation
26EvaluationThese are invaluable for our QA procedures, external inspection procedures and, most importantly in development of the programme
