Dear James- Number of hours teaching

Discussion in 'Trainee and student teachers' started by James_Williams, Jan 10, 2011.

  1. Your handbook should provide you (and your mentor) with some rough guidance on the number of hours a traionee is expected to teach for each placement they do. 8 hours is typical for a placement one and this increases for a placement 2. Often in placement 1 trainees rarely teach many KS4 and post 16 classes as these are exam classes - this sometimes gets better in placement 2 as the trainee gets better.
    Contyact your tutor and outline your timetable and the changes and ask for their advice. Tutors cannot force schools to relinquich classes to trainees, but often negotiation can take place.
  2. Ok thank you for your reply.
