Student Skills


Expected Pupil Outcomes

To work towards their repeats for GCSE double award science (foundation and higher tier) in February, and working towards examinations in May. To enhance their knowledge of the subject area.

Expected Student Tutor Outcomes

To gain valuable experience working in a post primary environment. Working alongside the teacher will not only give an insight into teaching as a career but will also give the student an opportunity to get a hands on experience working closely with pupils in the classroom with pupils who are struggling or need extra help prior to their exams or repeats. It's also a great chance to see first hand the expectations and responsibilities associated with a teacher.

Extra Information

To work firsthand with pupils to help in their learning of Science. Aims include providing help and assistance to pupils between Years 8-12 in terms of teaching, understanding of theories and processes, and carrying out practical elements of the course, alongside Mr Stewart. The main aim of assisting Year 11 and 12 is to help their reach their potential in their upcoming GCSE examinations, so that they can progress onto higher studies in Science such as A-Levels. Overall, the aim is to work closely with numerous pupils across the spectrum, helping them where possible so that they can learn in an enjoyable environment.
