Partnership For School Experience

This project seeks to further partnership between all those involved in School-Based Work, i.e. Students, Teachers, Schools and the College. This website has been specifically designed to provide information for all our partners and to promote a better understanding of the role of each partner in helping our students become excellent teachers of the future.


"Schools and HEIs have complementary roles in initial teacher education. Each has a distinctive and particular contribution to make to the professional development of student teachers. HEIs can offer students an academic and professional framework of courses around which the students' development as competent teachers will be built. Without the strength and practical focus given by schools, however, the programme for student teachers would be incomplete and unsatisfactory." (Teacher Education Partnership Handbook, 2010:39)
