In the Autumn Term, two days of most weeks are devoted to the College-based English Method programme. These subject sessions have a seminar/workshop format.
Teaching practice is in two main blocks, each in a separate school. During the school-based weeks of the Autumn Term, there are opportunities to observe teachers, to ask questions, and to speak with your school-based mentor – either the head of the English department in the school or another experienced member of staff.
Much of the Spring and Summer Terms are devoted to school-based work. Normally, two English students are located at each school so that, as well as teaching classes on your own, you may also be able to undertake joint teaching, including joint preparation and marking.
