This is where you can download the "Working Papers", which are the documents you will need to accompany work submitted for assessment.
- Unless otherwise indicated, all files are in Rich Text Format (compatible with all general-purpose word processing packages as far as I know).
- To download, click on the item you need: it will (probably) open in your word-processor and you can then "save as..." wherever you like.
If it does not work, this may be because you have got the security options on your browser set to "High", which will block downloaded files. In Internet Explorer go to Tools > Internet Options > Security and reset to "Medium". Parallel options exist for Firefox/Safari/Chrome (too many variations in recent versions to go into here).
Learning contracts, etc.
- Your "Personal Development Planner" is the key working document for the course. It includes both formal course documentation (particularly the Professional Practice Learning Contract) and structured material to help you keep track of where you are in respect of the personal and professional development component of the course. It helps you prepare for your tutorials and meetings with your mentor and ensure that you have all the information you need to assemble your portfolios for units 4 and 8 at the end of each year. It also includes the Mentoring Agreement.
- Observation Protocol for Professional Practice; it is up to you to provide your mentor or tutor with a copy of this on which to record their feedback on their observation. There is also an Acrobat version, for writing on. With a "pen", or even a "pencil". Weird. It'll never catch on. And some guidance notes on their use.
- Submission proposal and self-assessment; You should include one of these with each assessment submission (Note that these have been revised to supersede individual Unit Outcome Sheets, although those are still available below for Year 2 units for this year only).
- Template for submissions; This is a Word document, which can be used to set up your own Template, which will automatically format your submission as recommended. It will also work for Open Office (which is a free, no-strings attached, office suite which is at least as good as Microsoft's, and reads and writes MS Office documents.)
- The 2012-13 Handbook; (Cert Ed version / PGCE version) Editions tailored for particular centres will differ slightly. It is an Acrobat (.pdf) file, which needs the Acrobat Reader (in all probability you have that on your machine already. If not, click on the link to download it).
Programmes and Briefing Papers for the Study Days
- Will be available closer to the time.
