2020-21 Primary Spring Placement specific documentation

Click here to access information provided by Hull University for Trainees & Mentors to use during the Spring Placement. Please be aware that unless annotated with STAR TSA in the document title, this is general PGCE paperwork and any dates quoted may be slightly different to our programme dates – if in doubt please check the STAR TSA ITT handbook or email the STAR TSA Business Manager

IMPORTANT: THESE DOCUMENTS WERE PRODUCED PRIOR TO THE LATEST COVID-19 LOCKDOWN RESULTING IN THE CLOSURE OF SCHOOLS AND AS SUCH TRAINEES & MENTORS WILL NEED TO BE FLEXIBLE IN THEIR USE.

WHEREVER POSSIBLE THE HANDBOOK SHOULD BE FOLLOWED, BUT DURING PERIODS OF LOCKDOWN IT IS RECOGNISED THAT THE TRAINEE EXPERIENCE WILL BE DISRUPTED. WE HAVE ASKED THAT THERE IS FLEXIBILITY ON BEHALF OF THE SCHOOL & TRAINEE TO ENSURE THE BEST POSSIBLE EXPERIENCE & DEVELOPMENT POSSIBLE IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES..

Please see note form Hull University to placement schools below:

Dear Hull Initial Teacher Training (ITT) partnership schools,

Thank you for your continued support in providing our trainees with placement
opportunities. The national lockdown in England announced 5 January 2021 presents all of
us with new challenges and we remain committed to working in partnership with our
schools and trainees during this challenging period.


You will be aware that ITT trainees are classified as “critical workers”. It is our hope that
they will prove invaluable over the coming weeks in supporting the education of key worker
and vulnerable children in settings and the design and delivery of remote learning. We are
also mindful that Department of Education (DfE) guidance published 1 January 2021 enables
schools to deploy trainees ‘more flexibly’ in support of education during these challenging
and unprecedented times. This provides partner schools with a greater range of deployment
possibilities in support of school requirements such as individual or small group
mentoring/tutoring.

Head of the School of Education
