DEP: Year 1 – 3.6 Placement Learning

Field tutors seconded from Hampshire, Portsmouth and Southampton Educational Psychology Services play a key role in facilitating the placement learning of trainees in year 1. Trainees are linked to these field practitioners who organise school and service experiences to complement the academic teaching and provide opportunities for research activity in a practice environment. The approach allows for a graduated progression to fluent and adaptive practice. Trainees maintain a practical work file, completing the log of evidence for BPS competencies linked to SOPs and write two casework reports, and report on a teaching intervention.
