I’m happy to say that I’ve passed!
My grade is “Pass”. I did wonder if I might just possibly squeeze into the “Pass B” category but no, it wasn’t to be. In the UK, roughly 70% of passes are in my band so I shouldn’t be too surprised or disappointed.
The overall comment was:
“Clive has worked consistently well throughout the course. His planning is excellent and he puts a lot of time and effort into preparing plans and materials. He has good classroom management and uses a variety of techniques to make the learning successful. He delivers student-centred lessons and demonstrates tasks well with good visual support. He needs to continue to monitor his pace and to ensure for as much student-to-student interaction as possible. He will need some guidance to help him develop and broaden his range of skills as a teacher in post.”
– I think that’s fair enough. I know that I have plenty of room for improvement and I hope some will come with future classroom experience. It was a good course, well worth doing, and I’m sure that I’ve learned many techniques which will prove useful. That, after all, was my main purpose!
