This School Placement Guide aims to assist P.M.E. students who are about to complete their first School Placement block. This guide focuses on the different areas of School Placement that may not get addressed by college. Areas such as time management, outfits to wear and impostor syndrome are discussed. I have shared a number of personal experiences; as well as some sample templates you can use for inspiration while on your block of School Placement.
Please bear in mind that the college I am qualifying through may differ for you and you should also refer to your specific college’s school placement handbook as your first point of call.
No college has been named in this document. This version has been slightly edited to meet recent QQI legislation in regards to the selling of resources for student teachers.
