Supporting Student Transitions into Placement


Supporting Student Transitions into Placement.

Students undertaking Initial Teacher Education programmes face different transitions as they move between the University and school spaces. We’ve written a paper on the complexity of these transitions, exploring how we could better support our students in the future.

Using feedback from students returning from placements, focus group findings and drawing upon socio-material theory, we’ve mapped the main student transitions and identified a number of key themes to address. We’re currently producing a series of films that involve short conversations on each of the issues identified.
