What else would I be expected to do outside the timetabled hours?

You should expect to spend time:

  • Working with the other trainees in your teaching practice group to put together a timetable of lessons for your students
  • Planning your own lessons. Although you’ll only be teaching for short periods, it is normal to spend at least 2-3 hours preparing
  • Working on written assignments. These usually comprise two tasks related to language analysis and teaching materials (up to 3000 words in total). The assignments are relevant to your course and very practical. They are internally assessed.
