Beginning Placement Feedback

  • My mentor was extremely committed to encouraging my progress and offered me feedback after all lessons. They put aside time for this and weekly reviews included a detailed conversation with in depth feedback from my mentor. I was allowed to try out my own ideas and take risks with my mentors preview of my plans. This encouraged me to learn new effective teaching strategies and reflect on those that were not as successful and why.
  • Everyone was professional and extremely friendly. I never felt scared to try out something new and I knew there was support always behind me. I never felt scared to ask for help so I feel I leaned a massive amount from the staff.
  • Always there to give advice and support me with my placement. When she observed my lessons, her feedback was prompt and very helpful. Always there to answer my questions and source any plans/resources I needed. my weekly reviews and target setting meetings were completed weekly. I feel I created a positive professional relationship with my mentor.
  • My mentor was absolutely fantastic. He has gone above and beyond during the self-isolation incidents to see what he can do for me and how to progress me forward as much as possible. He has answered any questions I've had and has been very approachable. He has tried his absolute best to do as much as possible in the minimal time we've had together on placement and I felt he was very thorough with the details of the folder.
  • Each Friday afternoon my mentor put aside time for the weekly meeting to go ahead. This allowed me to prepare for the meeting and ensured my file was ready to present. My mentor, class teacher and all staff have been incredibly supportive during my beginning placement. I have developed new skills, and feel like a member of the team. I have particularly enjoyed specialist maths guidance from my class teacher. Her approach to mastery of maths is incredible...such a great role model for a student teacher. THANKYOU!!


Developing Placement Feedback

  • Mentor was extremely helpful throughout placement and made me feel welcome. We had regular contact throughout the week and met on a Friday afternoon to discuss how i had been getting on. Teachers were helpful and provided feedback on my tasks prior to teaching.
  • My school based mentor was amazingly supportive through such an unusual time
  • All staff in the school were incredible. I was made to feel very welcome and get involved with as much as possible. I feel I have made a lot of progress in this school. My UPT and mentor were excellent and I'm proud of the quality of my file. My UPT was in touch regularly.
  • My placement was thoughtfully organised, to allow me the greatest opportunity to progress and meet the teacher standards. My mentor gave excellent feedback (both written and verbal) including practical suggestions for improving my practice. They allowed me enough independence to develop my practice and gain experience, whilst always being supportive. I was offered ample opportunity to have informal meetings and discussions to seek opinion and reflect upon my teaching. I was given immediate verbal feedback on my observed lessons and the written feedback was prompt, allowing me to incorporate it into my targets.
  • My mentor was great at thinking of ways I could challenge myself to develop my practice. They encouraged me to reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of my practice allowing me to actively make changes and improve my practice.
  • Due to COVID and the way the school was operating, in our first week it was my mentor's week to be teaching from home, but she made the effort to come into school and make contact and showed us around and welcomed me very warmly. My mentor at this stage kept up zoom meetings at the end of the week and discussed further development, areas we would like to teach and focused on what we wanted out of our placement as opposed to telling us. The feedback and encouragement after observations from our mentor was excellent. I was always pushed to go further with my teaching, and when asking for advice, was given honest advice that would benefit my teaching career, rather than telling me something I wanted to hear.
