How you’ll be assessed
You will be assessed in two main ways, via your three academic assignments and the assessment of your teaching across professional placements.
You will submit three academic assignments for Level 6 or Level 7 credits in each of the three academic modules. A range of different methods of assessment are included to help you to show your knowledge, understanding and skills. These currently comprise a written critical essay-based assignment, a presentation and a digital assignment.
Replacing the Professional Skills Tests in Numeracy and Literacy, student teachers are now required by the Government to demonstrate competence against a set of fundamental maths and English skills by the end of their training. These will be assessed and supported across the course to enable all students to meet the expectations.
Professional practice will be formatively assessed during each professional placement experience, of which there are three. At the end of your final placement you will be assessed against the Teachers' Standards.
