School Based Training Sessions
Over the course trainees participate in active tutor-led sessions to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of teaching.
Our programme blends the best of school-based teacher training with high quality input and support from Winchester University. Students are based for teaching practice in two different schools but will visit all the primary settings in the Godalming Learning Partnership whilst receiving specialist support every step of the way.
Our training programme is designed to encourage a holisitc approach to learning. Students are encouraged to explore and embrace the ethos of each of our schools. They are immersed in primary pedagogy: the setting, the language used, the experiential learning delivered by leading practitioners. Training sessions consist of discussion, active learning, theory-based practice, Q&As and weekly home learning activities. The Learning Partnership sessions cover:
