    Now I am in placement 2 I have began to worry about the total number of lesson observations required. There are the obvious external assessments, but I am not sure about how many formal written assessments would be required during a typical ITT year. Does anyone have any formal or informal guidance.

    Thanks, IAN

    Surely your provider should be giving you this information?

    Our partner uni requires 2 formal observations per week. One should be with the same group every week whilst the second moves around.
    Any I do as PM are in addition to that, as are any that the uni do.
    Informal feedback on pretty much every lesson at this stage, focusing on key areas.

    Depends on provider, this is a fundamental thing though you need to clarify it with your provider.

    ours is one recorded on the system a week
