  • Enhancement Period – Monday 6th July 2020 – Monday 20th July 2020.  This is an opportunity for trainees who have completed their assessment to spend time in another setting that would enhance their practice.  Some trainees choose to spend this time in their employment school and some take the opportunity to visit settings that they are interested in such as Special Schools or Secondary Schools.

Whilst half term breaks are advertised, participants on the programme will have a significant amount of academic study to complete during this time. We would would like to make you aware that holidays away from home may result in trainee teachers falling behind on their academic elements.
