Student Skills

Primary teaching Secondary English English Literature

Expected Pupil Outcomes

KS3 pupils will have increased confidence in their own reading and deciphering abilities. They will have one-to-one tuition, guidance and support. KS4 pupils will have more experience with exam style resources and the small group teaching will allow them to ask questions, get immediate feedback for improvement and a chance to apply the feedback.

Expected Student Tutor Outcomes

The student tutor will become familiar with a very effective teaching strategy (BRP)and gain experience of its implementation. They will gain experience of working one on one with reluctant readers. They will work with the new specification for English GCSE and see it in action in the classroom. There will be the opportunity to observe teachers and assist within the classroom setting.
