Core Module 1
Log of Professional Practice During the programme you should evidence a breadth of teaching practice for a minimum of 200 hours, of which 150 hours will be teaching (direct contact), i.e. with groups for at least 70% and 1:1 for no more than 30% of the 150 hours. The remaining 50 hours will include involvement in team/departmental meetings, IV/EV meetings, interviewing, visits, observation of teaching, discussion with mentors, and other college activities (non-direct contact). This record will provide a portrait of your engagement in your developing professional practice and should show a breadth of practice in relation to different groups, levels or settings. Please indicate the session/s below for which you are including the lesson plan/s to meet the 1 hour required for PoLT.
