Do Universities accept that? I know that some of them struggle in finding placements for all of their trainees, especially placements that are not MILES away. I'm asking because I've volunteered in a primary school that shares premises with a very good Independent secondary school. This school is 10 minutes away from where I live and is also a schooI I would really love to work in. I know that if I ask the primary school Headteacher she will give me excellent references for the Independent as she liked my work and wanted to employ me as a TA. So my question is: If I can secure a yes from the independent school, is there a chance that my University will accept to send me there for my last placement? Thank you.
