Hi All Can anyone advise whether a trainee is allowed to teach PE? I know we are not allowed to supervise children during break without a fully qualified teacher but I am unsure about PE. Associate Tutors - Does anyone know why we need an Associate Tutor? The chap who organises placements keeps pulling a fast on on this - during my first placement his only concern was that the CT be the AT as well because he did not want to have to- because it is incovenient. When he came to visit us on the first day of placement this was his main concern asking us to ask the teacher for him. He has pulled the same trick again - but this time I am not even sure whether my CT is aware that she has to be my AT as well. It seems so unfair on her and the school - the role of AT can't be that important if my partnership tutor - cannot be bothered to do take on this role.
