At the early stages of learning to be a teacher, students need a detailed understanding of that factors to be considered in planning a lesson. Therefore, when beginning placements, we expect students to use the template that the university provides.
Download the Lesson Plan Template
On Developing and Extending placements there are more lessons to be taught to more children; so written planning requirements can be more flexible. At this stage; The student (only with their associate tutor's agreement) may use a school planning template or design their own.
The University of Cumbria would not expect students to be working soley from MTP's (weekly plans) until Extending phase.
Individual lesson plans should be provided for all observed lessons.
