Your teaching is assessed at least every second day at 20 minute, 40 minute and one hour intervals. Your tutor observes the class and completes a detailed feedback sheet whilst doing so. The tutor also gives you one of three possible grades for each assessed taught class; not to standard, to standard, above standard. There will also be key points of things you did well and three to four key areas of development to work on for the next lesson.
Once you have finished teaching, you will immediately write a self-evaluation of your own class which is then submitted to Cambridge along with the tutor’s report.
In addition, we have a meeting every day in which you reflect on your lesson and your colleagues and tutor give you constructive criticism, and so that verbal feedback along with the written feedback means that you constantly know how you are doing.
