As a primary trainee for students aged 5-11, you will have the opportunity to engage with pupils in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Your training programme will include two terms in one key stage followed by a term in the other key stage. Additionally, during your alternate key stage term, you will be placed in a different school, allowing you to gain valuable experience within a contrasting educational community.
In order to provide you with a well-rounded understanding of teaching, the course also includes experiences in a secondary school setting, exposure to early years education, visits to special schools, and an excursion to a school where a significant portion of the students are English Language Learners (EAL). These varied experiences will equip you with a comprehensive skill set and a deeper appreciation for the diversity of the educational landscape.
As a primary trainee for the 3-7 age group, your role will involve working closely with students in both Early Years and Key Stage 1. The training programme consists of two terms in one educational phase, followed by a term in the opposite phase. Additionally, during your term in the alternate phase, you will have the opportunity to work in a different school, allowing you to gain valuable insights and experience in a contrasting school community.
Our 3-7 training programme includes various enhancements to broaden your educational perspective. These include visiting a private nursery, spending dedicated time in Key Stage 2, visiting special schools, and a school where a significant proportion of students are English Language Learners (EAL). These experiences are designed to provide you with a well-rounded skill set and a deeper understanding of the diverse educational environments you will encounter during your career.
