11 Course Aims It is a government requirement that teacher trainees should meet the Teachers Standards laid down by the Secretary of State, in order to be recommended for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). The aim of the York PGCE course is not only to help you reach the Teachers Standards, but also to encourage you to examine, in a critical but constructive way, the current educational system and practice. The intention is that you should become skilled members of the teaching profession who are able to make a full contribution to educational debate and innovations of the future. The York PGCE qualification is at M-level. You will be asked to download a copy of the Standards profile on Google Sites, at the start of the course. You should keep a copy of the Standards profile. You are required to track, during your PGCE year, the way in which you feel you are fulfilling the Standards. Your Standards Profile document should be used for this tracking process. University tutors will give you more information about this at the start of the course. This document will be regularly monitored by your University Tutors. You may also wish to share it with your School Mentors. Course Structure The York PGCE course is provided through a partnership between the University and schools. This ensures that schools are fully involved in the planning, training and assessment of trainees in line with those requirements. You spend two thirds of the course in schools and have the opportunity to gain experience of teaching in at least two schools. The course pattern is shown overleaf. 8

You will also be observed at least once by the school professional tutor and at least once by a university tutor, as outlined above. Formal feedback is completed on the standard Weekly Lesson Observation Form (Form M). A copy of each completed observation form should be kept by you as part of your files. An observer does not expect to see 'model' or perfect lessons but will always be looking for evidence of progress in relation to the Teachers Standards and in relation to targets set previously. After three weeks at your second placement school Placement 2 Review 1 (Form J) is completed. The purpose of this review is to determine whether you have made a successful transition to your new school and whether your progress in relation to the Teachers Standards is appropriate at this stage. If there is a concern that you might not reach an acceptable standard of performance (i.e. you receive a grading of Below Standard ) by the end of the placement, you will be given additional help. If you are graded Satisfactory at this review point, you will also receive additional guidance and support with the aim of helping you to end your second placement as either Good or better. 18

22 At the end of the second school placement, Placement 2 Final Review (Form K) is prepared by your school and yourself. The purpose of this review is to state whether or not you have successfully completed the second teaching placement and met the required standards. You should continue to note, in your Standards Profile, instances where you feel you have met one or more of the Teachers Standards. Your progress in meeting the Standards will be discussed with your university tutor during the March 23rd day in University, as well as during the tutor s school visit. You should use your sheets entitled Weekly Record of Discussion with Subject Mentor to note your progress and achievements, as well as agreed targets. Further information can be found in the assessment section of this handbook (see p.21-27). Additional Support for Trainees Additional support for trainees is available throughout the programme and will vary according to individual needs. Extra support mechanisms can be triggered by a variety of events: trainees can communicate concerns about their developing practice with their tutor; mentors can raise a concern with tutor and trainee; a grading of Below Standard on any of the Reviews; issues arising during Tutor visits. Each of these may trigger a personalised support package for the trainee. This package would normally involve the trainee, tutor and school mentors. Satisfactory to Good Trainees graded Satisfactory at any of the Review points will receive additional support from Tutors and school mentors. This support will vary according to individual needs. Assessment In addition to attendance requirements, the compiling of your Standards Profile, and the completion of Reviews outlined above, there is one further component of formal assessment during the second teaching placement: Assignment 2 Evaluation of a teaching and learning sequence Details of this assignment are set out in your Assignment handbook. The completed assignment is to be handed in to your tutor and submitted via Turnitin on Friday 23 March 2018 together with the appropriate feedback form (Form L). 19

The remainder of the Summer Term is structured in the following way: Wk beg 21/05/18: University-based activities and directed study time Wk beg 28/05/18: University-based activities and directed study time Wk beg 04/06/18: Professional Enrichment (Week A) (School-based) Wk beg 11/06/18: Professional Enrichment (Week B) (School-based) Wks Beg 18/06/18 and 25/06/18: University-based activities and directed study time Professional Enrichment (Monday 4 June Friday 15 June 2018) are designated for a Professional Enrichment programme. On 25 May you will have an opportunity to finalise your own Professional Enrichment programme based on your needs and interests, to enable you to develop further as a teacher. It will be planned in negotiation with your university tutor and school mentor(s). You may work independently or collaboratively with other trainees. You will NOT have a formal teaching commitment. You should indicate your Professional Enrichment plans on Form N. Note that these 10 days form part of the total number of days which all PGCE trainees are required to spend in an educational setting. Your Professional Enrichment MUST be spent in an educational setting. The professional enrichment period may involve one or more of the following: a mini-research project development of teaching materials focused observation of experienced teachers improving aspects of your subject knowledge developing aspects of teaching your subject, e.g. further work with SEND pupils involvement in extra-curricular activities, trips, etc. work on addressing areas for further development in your draft CDP The normal expectation is that you will carry out this work in your second teaching placement school; however, it might be possible for you, by negotiation with your school mentor and university tutor, to be based: in your first placement school in your new (September) school in a post-16 establishment At the end of Week B of Professional Enrichment, you should ensure Form N is signed appropriately by the member of school staff with whom you have worked most closely. 21

25 During week 35, you will be expected to give a formal oral presentation to other trainees summarising the work done during the professional enrichment period. It is recommended that your presentation, which may have elements of a workshop format, should last approximately minutes. You should hand in the completed Form N to your tutor alongside your presentation. Your Professional Enrichment presentation should summarise: the focus of your experience and brief reasons for choosing it what you did what you learned from the experience how the experience will help you as a beginning teacher You might also consider how what you gained from the experience could help other trainees, e.g. by preparing a hand-out of key points from your presentation, or making available a PowerPoint summary, or including an interactive element such as a small task, or opportunities for questions. Whole School Issues As in the autumn term, whole school issues activities take place on Mondays, as indicated in the Whole School Issues handbook. This course is followed by all trainees and attendance at every session is compulsory. A record of attendance is kept. Curriculum Area Courses As in the autumn term, activities take place on Wednesdays and Fridays in Weeks 31, 33, 35, 36. Topics covered are outlined in your curriculum area handbook. In Weeks 35 and 36, Tuesday and Thursday may also be designated curriculum area days, and there will be other curriculum area times (e.g. during Monday and Tuesday during Week 31). Attendance at all these sessions is compulsory. Times when there are no formally timetabled activities are directed study periods. Assessment In addition to the attendance requirements, there is one component of formal assessment during the summer term, your Professional Enrichment Presentation and your CPD profile: Assignment 3 Details of this assignment are set out in the Assignments handbook. This assignment should be handed in to your tutor and submitted electronically via Turnitin on Friday 25 May 2018, together with the appropriate feedback form (Form O). Professional Enrichment Presentation A further assessment component is the Professional Enrichment Presentation. Form N should be completed, signed by a teacher in school, and handed in to your tutor with your presentation. During the Summer Term you should complete your Standards Profile. 22

26 Assessment There are four key strands of formal assessment in the PGCE course. All of these are designed to ensure that you fulfil the Teachers Standards for Qualified Teacher Status, and must be completed successfully. They are: 1. Attendance 2. Classroom teaching and involvement in school life 3. Assignments 4. Self-evaluation The fourth strand is a self-assessment strand, which includes the process of completing the Standards Profile, self-assessing your progress against the Assessment Grid prior to each school placement Review, completion of the Weekly Record of Discussion with Subject Mentor during teaching placements, lesson evaluations, and, during the second half of the course, your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) profile. Support in completing these documents is provided by university tutors and school mentors. Attendance You are expected to attend all classes, tutorials and events related to the school and university elements of the course. Records of attendance are kept. It is very important that reasons are given, where possible in advance, for absence from any school or university sessions. You will retain your own records of attendance in your Assessment File (documentation will be provided in WSI).You must complete the University self-assessment certificate if you are absent for up to seven consecutive days: this must be submitted to the University and to Claire Blackmore. Classroom teaching and involvement in school life You will spend a significant proportion of your time in schools working with teachers and tutors to develop your practical teaching skills. Progress in this is monitored regularly via teacher and tutor feedback, e.g. using the standard Weekly Lesson Observation Form (Form M). You will also be given the opportunity to make a wider contribution to school life. The majority of trainees normally make good progress and successfully complete the school teaching placements. This progress is tracked and recorded by schools, using the regular School Placement Reviews (Forms D, I, J, K). Copies of these are kept by the university. Trainees will be graded as either 1 Very Good, 2 Good, 3 Satisfactory or 4 Below Standard. Progress is signalled by feedback and weekly discussions with mentors and the four reviews completed across the two placements. During May, School Placement Reviews are considered by the Board of Examiners. If the Board considers trainees have met the Teachers Standards with regard to their school-based work, it will recommend a graded 'pass' on the school placement elements of the course. For a minority of trainees whose early progress is not satisfactory during the Teaching Placements, additional support and guidance is offered, to help them achieve the Standards. The need for this extra support is signalled by a grade (4) on the Review forms (and such trainees may be visited by an external examiner. If they are able to address the areas which need more progress, their success is signalled by a Satisfactory grade (3) or better on the 23

27 Placement 2 Final Review (Form K). If the Board of Examiners agrees they have made the necessary progress, it will recommend a graded 'pass' on the school placement elements of the course. Even though often highly motivated, a very small number of trainees are unable to demonstrate sufficient early progress in some crucial aspects of their training: this is signalled by a grade 4 on Review I or J. This triggers additional support and guidance, and it is probable that such trainees will be visited by an External Examiner. If, despite this extra support, there is still doubt that the Teachers Standards will be met by the end of the second teaching placement, trainees may decide to leave the course. The progress of those who complete the second teaching placement but are graded 4 on the Second Placement Final Review is discussed by the Board of Examiners, who may recommend that the trainee fail the teaching placement element of the course. Such trainees may be required to leave the course, but in some circumstances may be offered the opportunity to carry out a further teaching placement, usually during the next academic year. In rare circumstances, a trainee may be requested to leave a school because of unsatisfactory progress or unprofessional conduct. In such cases, the Board of Examiners will not recommend a pass. Similarly, if a trainee has not demonstrated an ability to cope with the required teaching load (about half a normal timetable), then the Board of Examiners will not recommend a pass. Trainees have the right of appeal against decision of the Board of Examiners through the University Special Cases Committee. Evaluations Trainees are invited to evaluate the course and school placements during the year: After Induction Week January (After Autumn Term) May Postgraduate Survey June (After Summer Term and Second Placement) The University of York s ITT course aims to provide the highest quality of professional learning, but this cannot be achieved without ongoing feedback from trainees. Trainees are kindly requested to complete programme evaluation forms in a professional manner. Evaluation forms are distributed twice during the year, once in January and once at the end of the course. Feedback is also sought from trainees at the end of induction week in October. It is important that trainees do not provide feedback anonymously as it is used in a number of different ways. For example, when trainees are asked about specific strengths and concerns about placement school(s) tutors need to raise issues professionally with colleagues at those particular schools. Curriculum Area leaders also use trainee feedback to review and write a report on the year s training course and devise an action plan of improvements to the following year s provision. Trainee feedback is seen by a number of different audiences including the Director of ITT, Curriculum Area Leaders and University Tutors, School Colleagues, External Examiners and Ofsted Inspectors. Because the PGCE Team takes feedback so seriously, it may well be that 24

28 additional clarification/further detail (usually via ) is requested from individual trainees regarding any concerns raised so that appropriate action can be taken. Summaries of responses to trainee feedback and an outline of improvement actions being taken as a result of feedback will be communicated to curriculum area trainee representatives at trainee rep meetings. This information will also be posted on the VLE and updated regularly. If a trainee is dissatisfied with or concerned about staff response(s) to feedback, trainees are requested to inform a trainee representative or raise the issue professionally in person or via an with the Director of ITT. Assessment Grid Please see the separate assessment document. 25

29 PGCE Trainee Handbook Self-assessment and the Standards profile In addition to the above formal assessment, you are encouraged to track and evaluate your own progress and to reflect in a positive and structured way on the development of your knowledge and skills as a teacher. This process of self-assessment recognises the worth of self-evaluation alongside feedback given by tutors and teachers in schools. You are required to complete the Standards Profile throughout the course. This document summarises the Teachers Standards which have to be met for you to be awarded QTS, and requires you to note down instances of when and how you feel the Teachers Standards have been met. To help you to recognise and track your progress towards meeting the standards, you should complete this Standards Profile regularly throughout the year, cross-referencing any statements you make to indicate where evidence of meeting the Teachers Standards can be found. One piece of evidence may relate to more than one of the Teachers Standards. All aspects of the course can contribute to the completion of this Profile: these include formal university-based provision in Whole School Issues and Curriculum Area sessions; school-based provision, including observation, teaching, and discussion; and other aspects which can include pre-course experience, primary placement, written assignments and extra reading, Professional Enrichment work. However, most of the standards relating to Professional Skills will be met solely during your school-based work. The columns in the profile enable you to identify instances of when, where and how you feel you have addressed each standard. You should aim to note quality examples rather than token instances, and by completing the profile electronically, you can replace examples as you go along. Guidance to help you identify how aspects of the course might contribute to this process will be available on the VLE. You are responsible for keeping this record, but your university tutor and school mentors will also be able to give you guidance and support. Your university tutor will also monitor your progress in completing the Standards Profile during the year. This is available on Google sites further information will be shared at the start of term. 26

30 Weekly Record of Discussion with Subject Mentor during School Placements Complete this each week You take responsibility to complete the booklet Your mentor signs the booklet You summarise your discussions You and your mentors set targets to help you to develop and meet the Teachers Standards You review your progress against the targets set The Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Profile The process of self-assessment and formal assessment combine to help you develop your CPD profile. This document is to be completed before the end of your training and taken with you into your initial teaching post. Its purpose is to summarise your experience during your initial professional training, and to record priorities for future development, both short-term (in your induction year) and in the longer term, (for your career and professional development). The timetable for developing your CPD profile is as follows: March Following the March day back at the university (23 March 2018), you draft provisional notes in answer to the questions and refine these over the remaining weeks of your second teaching placement. May During the final week of the second teaching placement, in discussion with your subject mentor and drawing on evidence from your Standards Profile, you draft answers to the questions. You should print these for your school mentor to read and discuss with you. May-June During the professional enrichment weeks, and the remaining time at the university, you continue to refine your draft, consulting with your university tutor as you make changes or additions. Final fortnight of the course You print out your final CPD profile for Wednesday 20 June It will then be signed by your tutor, and a copy made by the university. You take the document with you when you leave the course, for use during your first year of teaching. External Examiners As part of our monitoring and quality assurance, there is an external examiner for each subject area, and a chief external examiner. Their programme is scheduled during May and June. Each subject external examiner: visits a small number of trainees towards the end of the second teaching placement, to monitor judgements being made by university and school reviews a sample of marked written assignments (Assignments 1, 2 and 3) receives oral feedback, in discussion with trainees, on subject-specific aspects of the course writes a subject report for the university, with recommendations for change if appropriate. 27

31 The chief external examiner: visits a small number of trainees towards the end of the second teaching placement, to monitor judgements being made by university and school reviews a sample of marked written assignments (Assignment 1, 2 or 3) receives oral feedback, in discussion with subject representatives, on aspects of the whole course attends and advises at Board of Examiners meetings writes a programme report for the university, with recommendations for change if appropriate. PGCE Board of Examiners The PGCE Board of Examiners consists of PGCE tutors, school teacher representatives, and the Chief External Examiner. The Board meets twice during the Summer Term. The purpose of the first meeting (Wednesday 23 May) is to review your progress as a teacher and to determine whether or not you have completed your second teaching placement satisfactorily. The second meeting (Wednesday 27 June) reviews your overall progress. To pass the PGCE, and thus be recommended for QTS, you must have: met the attendance requirements completed all the written assignments to a satisfactory level (with no more than 20 credits failed see Assignment handbook) completed the Professional Enrichment process satisfactorily completed your second teaching placement satisfactorily completed your Primary School Placement satisfactorily submitted your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Profile satisfactorily. met the Teachers Standards for the award of QTS. Note: In exceptional cases the Board reserves the right to ask a trainee to satisfy any additional requirements which in its professional judgement it deems appropriate and reasonable. Extension Placements A trainee may be offered the opportunity to complete an Extension Placement if the Board of Examiners decides that the trainee has not yet met all of the Teachers standards but that progress made thus far would suggest that there is potential for a satisfactory outcome with limited additional work. This decision to offer an Extension Placement to a trainee can be made at either the meeting of the Board of Examiners in May or in June. The Board of Examiners will decide upon the length of an Extension Placement. A trainee could be offered an Extension Placement of either 5 or 10 weeks. The offer of a placement is conditional upon securing an agreement with a school to host the trainee. The DITT will write to the trainee to inform them of the decision taken by the Board of Examiners. The DITT will outline the targets that are still a particular cause for concern (and state that all standards must be satisfactorily demonstrated during the Extension Placement) and indicate the associated costs for the trainee. The DITT will make clear that the offer is conditional both upon being able to secure an agreement with a school to host the trainee and securing permission for a period of extended registration from the Board for Graduate Schools. If the trainee wishes to take advantage of this opportunity he or she is required to respond in writing to the DITT within 7 days of receipt of the letter. 28

32 If the trainee accepts the offer of an Extension Placement the DITT will ensure that the form requesting an extension to university registration is completed by the trainee s supervisor, trainee and chair of the Board of Studies prior to the submission of that document to the Board for Graduate Schools. If a school agrees to host the trainee during the Extension Placement a visit schedule is developed. This will include information about visits to be made by a university tutor and, possibly, a visit by an External Examiner. The schedule will be clarified during the Placement as the progress being made by the trainee is reviewed. During the Placement the following documentation will be completed and filed: The University of York lesson observation proforma (to be completed by the school each week); The Extension Placement Tutor Visit Proforma (to be completed by the university-based tutor during each visit) The Extension Placement Progress Review be completed mid-way through by the school mentor and trainee The Extension Placement Final Review be completed at the end of the Placement by the school mentor and trainee The Extension Placement Checklist will be completed by the DITT. Following the completion of the Extension Placement a Board of Examiners will be convened to consider the evidence of achievement in relation to the Teachers Standards for QTS. The DITT will ensure that the decisions taken by the Board of Examiners are communicated to the relevant individuals and groups. All relevant documentation will be placed as appropriate and in line with current practice on the PGCE Website. 29

33 Assessment File and Standards Profile To monitor your progress you should compile an Assessment File. Your assessment file should contain the following labeled sections: Subject knowledge audit and action plan KS3, KS4 and post - 16 enhancement evidence This section is where you will record your personal audit of the level of your knowledge in relation to your subject(s), covering Key Stages 3 and 4 of the National Curriculum and also post-16. Each audit will be followed by your own personal action plan detailing how you will develop your knowledge and address any weaknesses. Your audit and action plan will be monitored by subject tutors. Record of ICT experience in your subject In this section you will record evidence of the work you have done in relation to the use of ICT to enhance pupils learning in schools. This can be cross-referenced to your teaching files and to your initial audit of ICT competences, completed at the start of the course. Record of school-based tutorials Forms Pi, Pii and Piii In this section, you should note briefly the areas covered in school-based discussion on Tuesdays and Thursdays as well as the four sessions during second teaching placement. Please download the P forms from the PGCE webpage. Copies of weekly lesson observation reports on your teaching During your teaching placements in schools your teaching will be observed many times. The feedback that you receive from teachers, your subject mentor, the school s professional tutor and your university tutor is crucial in helping you to develop your skills and knowledge as a teacher. Some of this feedback will be informal but in each week of your teaching placement you should receive a written report of your teaching usually produced on the standard lesson observation sheet, (sample copy in the PGCE Trainee Forms, Form M). A copy of your weekly reports should be placed in chronological order in this section of your assessment file. These reports must be kept up to date as the information will be required by the school s professional tutor, your university tutor and (in some cases) by the external examiner. Weekly Record of discussion with Subject Mentor during school placements In each week of your teaching placements you will have a tutorial/discussion with the subject mentor in school. You should record principal points discussed on the sheets entitled Weekly Record of Discussion with Subject Mentor. One sheet should be completed for each teaching week during both school placements. In your Assessment File keep a chronological record of the principal points raised and discussed at these meetings and bullet point the action points and targets that arise from these discussions. Please make sure that you keep this information up to date. It forms a vital record that will be needed to inform your own evaluations of your progress and professional development and will be seen by school and university staff. 30

34 Teaching placement reviews Copies of your placement reviews (one for the autumn placement and three for the spring/summer placements) should be kept in this section. Assignment feedback forms Keep your assignment feedback forms in your assessment file as they are returned to you. Remember that the assignments will be retained by the University until the end of the course, when they will be available to you to take away. Attendance logs Please record your attendance on the attendance logs that can be downloaded from the PGCE website. Professional enrichment Put your copy of Form N in your assessment file, once your Professional Enrichment presentation is completed and the form is signed by your tutor. Standards Profile To help you to recognise and track your progress towards meeting the standards, you should complete this Standards Profile regularly throughout the year, cross-referencing any statements you make to indicate where evidence of meeting the Teachers Standards can be found. One piece of evidence may relate to more than one of the Standards. All aspects of the course can contribute to the completion of this Profile: these include formal university-based provision in Whole School Issues and Curriculum Area sessions; school-based provision, including observation, teaching, and discussion; and other aspects which can include pre-course experience, primary placement, written assignments and extra reading, Professional Enrichment work. The columns in the profile enable you to identify instances of when, where and how you feel you have addressed each standard. You should aim to note quality examples rather than token instances, and if you complete the profile electronically, you can replace examples as you go along. It is important that the Standards Profile does not merely record exposure to particular aspects of the standards; you need to show how the quality of your work is evidence that you are on the way to or have reached the required standards. For this reason any judgements made about your work e.g. on lesson observation forms or in assignment feedback should be referenced in this document, as well as your own self-evaluations. Your university tutor will monitor your progress in completing the Standards Profile during the year. It should be used in discussions with school and university staff to help review your progress and to assist in target setting. 31

35 PGCE Trainee Handbook Teachers Standards PREAMBLE Teachers make the education of their pupils their first concern, and are accountable for achieving the highest possible standards in work and conduct. Teachers act with honesty and integrity; have strong subject knowledge, keep their knowledge and skills as teachers up-todate and are self-critical; forge positive professional relationships; and work with parents in the best interests of their pupils. PART ONE: Teaching 1 Set high expectations which inspire, motivate and challenge pupils - establish a safe and stimulating environment for pupils, rooted in mutual respect - set goals that stretch and challenge pupils of all backgrounds, abilities and dispositions - demonstrate consistently the positive attitudes, values and behaviour which are expected of pupils. 2 Promote good progress and outcomes by pupils - be accountable for attainment, progress and outcomes of the pupils plan teaching to build on pupils capabilities and prior knowledge - guide pupils to reflect on the progress they have made and their emerging needs - demonstrate knowledge and understanding of how pupils learn and how this impacts on teaching - encourage pupils to take a responsible and conscientious attitude to their own work and study. 3 Demonstrate good subject and curriculum knowledge use of lesson time -promote a love of learning and children s intellectual curiosity -set homework and plan other out-of-class activities to consolidate and extend the knowledge and understanding pupils have acquired -reflect systematically on the effectiveness of lessons and approaches to teaching -contribute to the design and provision of an engaging curriculum within the relevant subject area(s). 5 Adapt teaching to respond to the strengths and needs of all pupils - know when and how to differentiate appropriately, using approaches which enable pupils to be taught effectively -have a secure understanding of how a range of factors can inhibit pupils ability to learn, and how best to overcome these -demonstrate an awareness of the physical, social and intellectual development of children, and know how to adapt teaching to support pupils education at different stages of development -have a clear understanding of the needs of all pupils, including those with special educational needs; those of high ability; those with English as an additional language; those with disabilities; and be able to use and evaluate distinctive teaching approaches to engage and support them. 6 Make accurate and productive use of assessment -know and understand how to assess the relevant subject and curriculum areas, including statutory assessment requirements -make use of formative and summative assessment to secure pupils progress -use relevant data to monitor progress, set targets, and plan subsequent lessons and rewards consistently and fairly -manage classes effectively, using approaches which are appropriate to pupils needs in order to involve and motivate them -maintain good relationships with pupils, exercise appropriate authority, and act decisively when necessary. 8 Fulfil wider professional responsibilities -make a positive contribution to the wider life and ethos of the school -develop effective professional relationships with colleagues, knowing how and when to draw on advice and specialist support -deploy support staff effectively -take responsibility for improving teaching through appropriate professional development, responding to advice and feedback from colleagues -communicate effectively with parents with regard to pupils achievements and well-being. PART TWO: Personal and professional conduct A teacher is expected to demonstrate consistently high standards of personal and professional conduct. The following statements define the behaviour and attitudes which set the required standard for conduct throughout a teacher s career. Teachers uphold public trust in the profession and maintain high standards of ethics and behaviour, within and outside school, by: - treating pupils with dignity, building relationships rooted in mutual respect, and at all times observing proper boundaries appropriate to a teacher s professional position -having regard for the need to safeguard pupils well-being, in accordance with statutory provisions -showing tolerance of and respect for the rights of others -not undermining fundamental British values, including 32

36 -have a secure knowledge of the relevant subject(s) and curriculum areas, foster and maintain pupils interest in the subject, and address misunderstandings - demonstrate a critical understanding of developments in the subject and curriculum areas, and promote the value of scholarship -demonstrate an understanding of and take responsibility for promoting high standards of literacy, articulacy and the correct use of standard English, whatever the teacher s specialist subject 4 Plan and teach well structured lessons - impart knowledge and develop understanding through effective -give pupils regular feedback, both orally and through accurate marking, and encourage pupils to respond to the feedback. 7 Manage behaviour effectively to ensure a good and safe learning environment -have clear rules and routines for behaviour in classrooms, and take responsibility for promoting good and courteous behaviour both in classrooms and around the school, in accordance with the school s behaviour policy -have high expectations of behaviour, and establish a framework for discipline with a range of strategies, using praise, sanctions democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs -ensuring that personal beliefs are not expressed in ways which exploit pupils vulnerability or might lead them to break the law. Teachers must have proper and professional regard for the ethos, policies and practices of the school in which they teach, and maintain high standards of attendance and punctuality. Teachers must have an understanding of, and always act within, the statutory frameworks which set out their professional duties and responsibilities. 33

37 PGCE Trainee Handbook Facilities and Resources for Trainees Resources Areas Each curriculum area has a "home base" providing access to teaching and learning resources and equipment. Some resources and apparatus are on open access while other materials may be obtained via tutors or technicians. Further information on the resources in each curriculum area base is documented in the curriculum area handbook. Website Trainees documentation is available on the PGCE website VLE The VLE gives electronic access to a range of resources at whole school level and subject level. More details will be provided in the early part of the course. The VLE has an announcements page which you are urged to check regularly, especially during school placements. ICT It is important that trainee teachers develop their own ICT competence and their knowledge, skills and understanding of the use of ICT in their subject teaching. By the end of the Autumn Term, all trainees will have: identified their needs relating to their own competence by completing an audit; worked on their own needs following the completion of the audit; trainees who are more ICT-literate are encouraged to act as support for others. been introduced to issues relating to ICT in teaching; been introduced to uses of ICT in their own teaching subject at the University; observed and perhaps used ICT in the classroom. During their teaching placements PGCE trainees are expected to develop their use of ICT in the classroom. To help them in this, schools are asked to: ensure that trainees have opportunities to experience ICT in use in the whole school, and within their subject areas ensure that trainees assess the impact the use of ICT has on pupils learning and progress encourage trainees to use ICT for preparing lessons (eg worksheets; PowerPoints, Prezi, Movie Maker, IWB) encourage use of ICT with pupils of all abilities including SEND, when appropriate ensure that at least one lesson during the placement is ICT-oriented give trainees access to the school's hardware and software monitor the trainees' progress in ICT and include specific mention of it in oral and written feedback, and on the progress review sheets Use University and School VLE, engage with Blogs, Wikis, Podcasting and Twitter 34

38 Provision in School The partnership agreement between the University of York and its partnership schools makes the following provision for trainees: regular observation of and feedback on their lessons, including their planning, their teaching and assessment methods; this could be oral or written feedback, from the subject mentor or other subject teachers, and (at least once during the second teaching placement) by the Professional Tutor formal written feedback, during both teaching placements, in the form of the Weekly Lesson Observation Form, structured against the Teachers Standards and including targets for future progress. a weekly formal tutorial during the autumn term (before Block 1 of Placement 1 begins) on an agreed subject-specific topic a weekly session during the autumn term (before Block 1 of Placement 1 begins) and for an agreed number of weeks during the second teaching placement on WSI. opportunities to observe lessons during both placements. a weekly meeting, during the first and second placements, with subject mentor to review progress against the Teachers Standards (using the Standards Profile as the basis for the meeting s agenda), and to discuss targets for the future. It is the responsibility of the trainee to keep a record of this meeting (on the pro-forma entitled Weekly Record of Discussion with Subject Mentor), with the mentor and trainee both signing the record. The procedure which should be followed by trainees who feel they are not receiving the training outlined above is as follows: the issue should be raised initially with either the subject mentor or the professional tutor, in a professional way; if the issue cannot be resolved satisfactorily in school, the trainee should consult his/her university tutor. In cases which remain unresolved at this point, the course director will become involved if this is deemed appropriate. Your subject handbook contains a list of expected learning opportunities in school. 35

39 Provision at University The partnership agreement makes the following provision for trainees: courses in Subject Method teaching and Whole School Issues in the Autumn Term; further sessions during January, March and May/June (see course outline) the provision of school placements which provide regular, structured teaching opportunities, assessment and support in order to develop the Teachers Standards, and preparation for these school placements via inputs referred to above support during their school placements, including liaison with subject mentors and Professional Tutors, to meet the Teachers Standards support with reviewing and reflecting on their first placement school experience on their return to the university in December and February; help with target-setting for teaching placement 2 at least two school visits, one in each teaching placement, where a subject tutor will undertake a formal observation followed by written and oral feedback on their lesson planning, teaching, assessment, and evaluations. Further visits will be made if school staff feel there are problems with a trainee making sufficient progress towards the Teachers Standards. If there is serious concern, trainees will be observed by an External Examiner who will provide independent written feedback and assessment advice for planning written assignments and feedback on these advice on drafting the CPD document and on approaching suitable Professional Enrichment placements; this will mainly take place during the return visit in March partway through the second teaching placement. (Tutors will agree and sign the final draft of the CPD at the end of the course) advice and support on seeking and securing a teaching post pastoral support throughout the course 36

40 Trainees Responsibilities Trainees are expected: to attend, and be punctual for, all elements of the course, both University-based and school-based; and to inform university or school in good time of any absence; to undertake all reasonable requests made of them by tutors, mentors or other colleagues in school; to ensure they undertake (i) regular monitoring of progress towards meeting the Teachers Standards for the Award of QTS by completing the Standards Profile, and (ii) weekly monitoring of progress in school by completing the Weekly Record of Discussion with Subject Mentor; to meet all deadlines for submission of assignments, other course documents and administrative information; to return materials and resources borrowed from school before the end of the school placements, and books etc borrowed from the university before the end of the course; to conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times. Some examples of professionalism: Arriving early for university sessions and for each day in school; turning off your mobile; waiting until breaks to eat or drink other than water); Being polite, honest, fair and patient in your interactions with everyone involved in the course; Demonstrating appropriate conduct at all times (including dress codes and personal presentation); Being involved with a tutor group, and in whole school and extra-curricular activities; Planning all lessons and getting plans checked; Ensuring pupils work is regularly assessed and recorded, and that all marking is up to date by the end of each school placement; Using non-contact time in school profitably; Being prepared to stay behind after school to consult with school staff, attend departmental meetings, parents evenings, etc; Evaluating your performance and striving for improvement; Understanding and abiding by issues of confidentiality; Understanding and being sensitive to the fact that tutors, mentors and other professionals in the course are busy people; Abiding by school and department policies, paying particular regard to issues of e-safety and appropriate use of social media (e.g. setting privacy settings appropriately). Where a trainee does not comply with these guidelines, or with any other reasonable expectations eg proper written lesson plans, failure to mark pupils work regularly, ignoring advice given etc., this should initially be dealt with between the subject mentor and the professional tutor. Where concerns persist, the professional tutor should contact the relevant university tutor. 37

41 PGCE: Financial Arrangements Travel expenses for school placements and visits Set out below are the arrangements for dealing with refunds for travel expenses incurred in connection with your teaching placements. Generally speaking, any reasonable claim for a refund of travel expenses genuinely and necessarily incurred will be met. However, at a time of severe financial stringency for the University, we rely on your co-operation to ensure that these claims are kept to an absolute minimum. We shall therefore expect: that if you live within reasonable walking or cycling distance of the school you will not use public transport unless absolutely essential; that, if transport is essential, you will travel by the cheapest means available: bus, train, or car (shared car wherever possible see below); that, if you travel by train, you will travel second class and use your young person s rail card, where appropriate; that if you are living away from York during the block teaching placements, you will obtain temporary accommodation as near as possible to your placement school. In cases where a group of trainees are at the same school and one or more of these is a car-owner, the trainees concerned will be expected to travel together in the minimum number of cars. Expenses will be paid to the car-owner on this understanding, and claims should be made based on the mileage chart below, using the blue forms at the end of the PGCE Trainees Forms booklet. Additional copies of blue forms may be obtained from Mary Yates in the Department of Education, or downloaded from the PGCE website. Expenses will not be paid: if the distance travelled between the trainee s place of residence and the school is the same as or less than the distance between the trainee s place of residence and the University; where trainees have chosen to travel by their own means when transport was provided or could have been shared with another trainee; for travel to schools within York. The detailed arrangements are as follows: With regard to the block teaching placements, you may claim (i) the cost of return journeys made in connection with preliminary visits and (ii) the cost of extra daily travel actually and necessarily incurred between the place of residence and the placement school. Any questions about travel expenses should be directed to Mary Yates in the Department of Education. 38

If your school is not on the above list, please confirm mileage with Mary Yates. Hardship Fund and Access Fund If you are in need of extra financial assistance, and particularly if you find yourself in unexpected financial difficulties because of unforeseen, necessary expenditure, you may be able to receive additional support from either wider university funding or a ring-fenced PGCE Hardship fund. More details are available at: on the VLE under Support for you Some trainees are able to receive financial assistance with travel/school placement costs because they meet the eligibility criteria for PGCE Access funding. More details are available on the VLE. Any trainee who experiences financial difficulties during their ITT year to such an extent that their likelihood of completing the course is jeopardised, should discuss issues as soon as possible with their university tutor and/or the DITT Further information about Access funding will be shared with you at the start of the academic year. Payment of your teacher training bursary When you register before or during Induction Week, arrangements will be made for payment of your training bursary. 39

43 Professional Associations Listed below are the main Professional Associations to which many teachers belong. These provide membership packages for trainees. Representatives of the associations are invited to visit the Department and/or to provide publicity material. The Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) at The National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers (NAS/UWT) at The National Union of Teachers (NUT) at The Professional Association of Teachers (PAT) at Details of associations which are concerned with particular curriculum areas or interests will be made available by tutors. There is no requirement for a trainee or teacher to be a member of any professional association. Your First Teaching Post Most teaching posts are advertised in the TES (Times Educational Supplement) which is published every Friday and is available in the University Library. It can also be accessed on-line. The Guardian has an Education Supplement every Tuesday, and the Independent every Thursday. These carry a number of advertisements for posts in the Education Service. The Department also receives copies of Teachers' Weekly and TES First Appointments. Some Local Education Authorities and head teachers send details of posts direct to the Department. These will be made available by curriculum area tutors, or ed to you via Claire Blackmore. The University Careers Service also receives details of teaching vacancies. Posts are also advertised on the web. Job applications are made either directly to schools or to an LA. By far the majority of secondary school posts are filled by direct application to schools. Making an application usually involves completion of an application form and/or submission of a letter of application and CV. General advice on applications and interviews will form part of your PGCE programme. Tutors and school mentors will provide additional and specific help. Please do ask for this as you consider and then make applications and prepare for interview. Please refer to the first post section on our VLE. Please refer to the Getting your first post Prezi: 40

For example, 100% of our students agreed our staff are enthusiastic about what they are teaching, according to the 2015 National Student Survey, and we were in the top ten for world leading research and impact in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework. We were also ranked in the top ten of both the Guardian and the Complete University Guide in Studying for a degree is both exciting and challenging. You will encounter new ideas, new ways of thinking about ideas, and new ways of studying. At York, we want to encourage people to become independent learners and thinkers, who can engage critically with a range of educational issues, and offer informed opinions in a field of study that is of crucial importance to society. This handbook is intended to guide and support you through your studies. Please do read it carefully. If you have any questions or suggestions for improvement, please do let me know. I hope you enjoy your time in the Department.
