We are looking to secure some further placements for our second year undergraduate initial teacher education students. This is a great year group to work with – students have experience of time in school from their first year, and have had time to grow their subject knowledge and experience across a range of subjects. The placements give students opportunity to grow their capabilities before taking on the full role of the class teacher in their final year, and schools opportunity to spot talent early as well as support the next generation of teachers.

The placement runs from Monday 17th April through to Friday 9th June and needs to be based in Key Stage 2.  Students start off by doing a small amount of teaching per day, working up to around three days per week by the end of their time in school.

If you can help, please contact our Placement Coordinator via ess12i3@reading.ac.uk We would be delighted to hear from you!
