Successful Teaching Placement in Scotland Primary and Early Years

Successful Teaching Placement in Scotland Primary and Early Years

First Edition

May 2008 | 176 pages | Learning Matters
The majority of ITE students in Scotland are postgraduates with only one year to grasp the vast skills and knowledge required to become a primary teacher. Therefore, for many, school placement is a source of stress and worry. This book combines the information and support that students need to help them prepare for, enjoy and maximise the benefits of teaching placements for their professional development. It has been specifically written for the education system in Scotland, taking full account of the differences in practice and terminology that make English books of little use to trainees in Scotland.
