Student teachers

This page contains five excellent resources for student teachers:

  • Student Reflections - a collection of exemplar essays by student teachers.
  • Students' SOW's - a collection of exemplar schemes of work also produced by student teachers.
  • Trainees' Briefing Papers - aids to learn more about the issue to be taught with very practical activities that can be trialled in the classroom.
  • BeCaL Learning Centre - which will introduce you to practical ways of offering citizenship education as well as spiritual, moral, social and cultural development across the whole curriculum. For example the fifth section 'PSHE, RE & CE' provides a rationale for developing school values in focussed curriculum time. There are 25 lesson plans offered which introduce the themes of story, trust, power and success as a means of developing citizenship education.
  • BeCaL 'Toolkit' - comprising 30 items each of which is a practical resource for developing a values-based curriculum. For example, the Values Project for SMSC and Citizenship item contains a number of lesson plans and an overview of the context in which they were developed at a secondary school in Bristol.
