University Expectations Week 1 Trainee to set up school experience file (SE Handbook p. 12) Observe at least one lesson daily and complete an Observation form/ critical reflection form. Discuss with the classteacher what they will be teaching and when they will be teaching it. Work alongside the class teacher, taking groups as required. They should produce retrospective lesson plans for at least 5 of the group lessons. Co-plan with the class teacher and partner for groups to be taught in week 2. Plan 2 sessions each day. Prepare a weekly review sheet for the weekly meeting with the class teacher. Think about the targets you would like to set. Make some reflective entries in the RP Identify a timescale to complete the school based tasks (p.7 of SE Handbook) Useful checklist (SEE p.20 of Trainee’s SE Handbook).
University Expectations Observations: The trainee should be observed formally at least once a week using the UW observation form. One observation must be carried out jointly with the University SE Tutor to agree grading. If possible trainees should observe an experienced teacher in another key stage.
Weeks 2 and 3 Co-plan, co-teach and co-evaluate at least three whole class lessons/sessions with the class teacher and partner Continue to plan to teach groups each day. The trainee must have clear plans for each session/lesson taught. Evaluate each lesson. One lesson should be evaluated in detail each day, the others can be an annotation on lesson plans. Make notes about how the teacher records pupil progress. Prepare the weekly Review sheet Continue to make RP entries Please continue to check files are up to date and organised. University Expectations
University Expectations Week 4 Teach at least two lessons/sessions each day ( group/whole class).

Teach at least three whole class lessons on their own. Co – evaluate with your partner. Have clear lesson plans for all group and class lessons taught Return all resources which have been borrowed Complete all school based tasks Ensure the RP is completed Check files are up to date and organised.
Teachers’ Standards for SE1 Reflective Portfolio Standards 1 – 8 but not all subsets
Assessment Each trainee will receive 1 visit from SE tutor in week 2/3 to carry out a joint assessed observation. Each trainee needs I assessed observation by class teacher each week. With best practice, the trainee will have plenty of informal feedback as the practice progresses. See flow chart for grading criteria.
If student has problems…. If a trainee is given 4 or more emerging standards they must be issued with a targeted support, agreed with the SE Tutor. Please discuss and set specific (and realistic) targets, set a review date, send a copy of the form to Elizabeth Davies. The trainee should be observed on the review date. If the targets have not been met, the trainee this will result in a failed practice. If you have any concerns, please act swiftly. If in doubt, contact the SE Tutor or someone in the Partnership Team.
