Early Years SBT 2 – Alternative Age Range Placement
During the course of their training, trainee teachers need to be prepared to teach across the 0 to 5 age range (the EYFS). To ensure all trainees are experienced across the age range, they engage in a placement working within an alternative age.
During SBT2 no trainee will be required to perform more than 90% of the duties normally required of a full-time early years teacher.
The placement will be organised by the School of Education Partnership Office. The placement is 13th – 24th November 2023.
The main contacts are:
Holly Kilvington – Course Leader – H.Underwood@brighton.ac.uk
Michaela Borland – lead mentor – M.Borland@brighton.ac.uk
General enquiries should be sent to the course administrator Madi Barker – email@example.com
