All PLS teachers will complete their teacher training in two contrasting school placements. These will begin in placement A, with up to 6 weeks in placement B, then returning to placement A for the remainder of the programme.
The second school placement is essential in giving PLS teachers a contrasting experience to that experienced in their placement A. The length of placement B is up to six weeks for all PLS teachers and will take place at the start of the Spring Term. PLS will organise a swap with another contrasting school within the partnership. All PLS teachers will have visited their placement B before the Spring Term to ensure a seamless and effective transition for PLS teacher, mentor and learners.
PLS work in partnerships with schools across East London. PLS teachers may be placed in any of these partner schools.
