Subject Based Study
Subject audit and mentor meetings to develop enhanced subject knowledge and pedagogical understanding. Each week one day of subject training takes place to develop deep understanding of your specialism. Directed by Subject Experts you will work through aspects of curriculum pedagogy, deep subject knowledge and statutory framework requirements along side how to inspire pupils into being motivated within your subject.
The programme is structured to provide experience in all four schools within The Solent SCITT: one main school which you return to, a second six week school experience and two three week school experiences. Throughout your school experiences a trained subject mentor will oversee your training plan and set specific targets focused on becoming a competent teacher meeting all teaching standards. Observations and reflections of outstanding practice will form a key part of your teaching practice to become a critically reflective practitioner.
Teaching and Learning and Personal Development
TL PD sessions involve pre-session reading and reflection, discussion with colleagues and input into seminar sessions.
The professional role of a teacher is explored in detail in order to meet all teaching standards.
Interactive sessions delivered by experts using up to date developments, followed up with reflective activities help you to stand out from other teachers and be competent in all aspects of being a teacher.
