PGCE Trainee teaching and additional placements

At Cheltenham Bournside School we work in partnership with the Cotswold Edge Teaching Alliance (CETA) and the Universities of Worcester, Bristol and Gloucestershire Initial Teacher Education Partnership (Gitep) to provide school based experience for trainee teachers.

Each trainee is assigned a Subject Mentor who monitors and supports the development of subject specific practice in a highly supportive and aspirational environment. You will be supported in developing your professional; knowledge and the skills necessary for delivering creative, purposeful and challenging teaching and learning in order to meet the Teacher’s Standard.

Weekly professional meetings are held with the ITTC to support progress, and to monitor the highest possible standards in both teaching and learning practice and professional conduct.

Each trainee is assigned a Subject Mentor who monitors and supports the development of subject specific practice in a highly supportive and aspirational environment.  Focusing on professional knowledge and an understanding of the skills necessary for delivering creative, purposeful and challenging teaching and learning in order to meet the Teacher’s Standards.

As a teacher, you’ll be playing a dynamic, hands-on role in a child’s education and as a student yourself, we’ll give you every opportunity to take on this role, putting theory into practice and immersing yourself in planning and delivering lessons.

This is carefully phased so you begin by observing lessons, gradually increasing your input under the guidance of the class teacher and your subject mentor.

By the end of your programme you will have transformed from a watchful observer to an active participant, taking on full classroom responsibility and preparing yourself well for the NQT year.
