School Placement



The programme gives trainees a minimum of 120 days in school and 59 training days, of which 12 days Academic Practice and 16 Subject Pedagogy days will be taught by Liverpool Hope University. Trainees will have a total of three placements, across a minimum of two contrasting schools.


Placements take place across key stage 1 and key stage 2 for Primary (V912).


Your professional development training will consist of 10 additional days delivered by WCPA.


You will also receive 21 days of intensive training and practice (ITaPs) on key pivotal areas of practice such as curriculum design and behaviour management, where you will engage with a range of carefully designed practical learning experiences, to accelerate your development in these areas.


All students prior to starting the course complete an audit to support placement of students. Throughout the year the audit is amended based upon gained experience, skills, knowledge and understanding so that students are able to be placed in the most suitable school to further support their development against the teachers standards. Our diverse partnership highly supports the differing experiences.
