June 14, 2011
From September 1st until June 14th. Have had 24 observations, 5 of which from University tutors, and the final one took place today.
It went really well, was a year 12 lesson on ultrasound in medicine. With a PhD in ultrasound, it is something I can talk about for a long, long, long, long time. I guess my enthusiasm for this branch of Physics was evident in the lesson!
Had a very productive chat after the lesson with my subject tutor, who congratulated me. He was perhaps the most intimidating character of all those who assessed me, but he has been extremely thorough in his analysis of my lessons and feedback has always been constructive. So thanks for that.
So this is kinda the end of my GTP course in a way. I have completed everything for the University side now, and await confirmation of me obtaining QTS on June 29th, and also what mark they suggest I am awarded.
Still have 5 and a half weeks of teaching, and at some point soon, I will comment on events of last Friday (year 11 leavers assembly). I have very strong views on the matter, just waiting til my mind can articulate the feelings in a constructive way (otherwise I may eventually end up in trouble).
Hope everyone is ok, and it is good to see many people on facebook making reference to passing final assessments! Keep it going.
