The Make-up of the programme
A Unique Familiarisation Programme
NMAPS offer a unique 3-day summer residential familiarisation course before you start at your placement school. You will have an opportunity to meet your peers and have an in-depth introduction to teaching.
Four days teaching…..
High Quality School Placements
NMAPS has carefully selected schools in both the state and independent sector, with robust Mathematics and Physics departments. The majority of your course will be in one main placement school with six weeks in a contrasting second school. A main advantage of NMAPS is that you will normally know your main placement school before accepting a place on UCAS.
A 3-day primary school placement will complement your understanding of a child’s school journey. Your experience will be further broadened through short placements at a Special School and a Pupil Referral Unit.
…..for every day of theory
One day per week will be spent in your Hub school or at a national training session, taught by current teachers at the top of their profession. Our specialist programme allows you the opportunity to explore the pedagogy (the art) of teaching, tailored to your particular subject. You will benefit from learning teaching strategies to make you more effective in the classroom.
