4 Training Plan (B5)The TP is drawn up by the school in consultation with the trainee and with guidance from the Partnership tutor team.The TP will cover a variety of teaching experiences and training activities, across two key stages, within either Primary or Secondary.It helps you to compile and track your evidence

14 It is in no-ones interest that we fail Trainee Support PlanIf a trainee needs extra support, the school, tutor and Partnership will utilise the Trainee Support Plan to address concerns.It is in no-ones interest that we fail
15 Delicate BalanceSchool is the primary training provider. SCITT is the accrediting body and as such has the final say.
16 2nd Experience Does the school provide a contrasting experience? Guidance on selecting a second school placement:Does the school provide a contrasting experience?Is the school in a different socio-economic group?Does the school offer me opportunity to work with children who different individual needs from children in my school?Is the school an existing partner?16
17 The 2nd experience can be with the same key stage or year group BUT…if this is the case your main school must provide experience across 2 key stages within your main placement.17
