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.

It really was a light bulb moment as I started to understand how the curriculum informs the assessment of each pupil which then feeds into planning which results in giving the pupils targets that they can meet every lesson.
