Non contact time in GTP Primary

Discussion in 'Trainee and student teachers' started by SEH456, May 3, 2011.

  1. I'm starting GTP Primary at Derby in September. Does anybody know approximately how much non-contact time there is on the GTP? I know there is an awful lot of work, but just wondered roughly how the teaching and mentor/PPA elements are distributed. I have been told that every fortnight there will be one full day in University, but I'm not sure if we are given any time during the week to work on assignments/evidence portfolio or if that is all to be done in our own time.
    I have a meeting in Uni next month when I will undoubtedly find out more, but just wondered if anyone would be able to give me a heads up?

    It does vary from place to place and depends on the university in my area we operate a 20% -30%first term rising to 50%-60% second and 80% by third term
