COME BACK YEAR 12s!
This study leave period is really doing my nut in. All these frees I have recently acquired make for some very empty and boring days!! They will return post-half-term, so the timetable will pick up again, but AS Physics averages at almost a lesson a day for me over my two week timetable.
My journey to QTS now has confirmed timelines:
Today: Completed my AP3
Friday 27th; Subject Knowledge Q14 assessment.
June 7th: Final assessment
So in two weeks, I guess my journey to become a qualified teacher will almost be over, bar an exam board's decision. It seems to have come around incredibly quickly, yet it has been a pretty intense time. On reflection I have achieved a hell of a lot, and also have participated in a hell of a lot too. So many meetings, so many all nighters, so many practical jokes taking staplers from technicians and leaving ransom notes.....
Tomorrow, I'll be prepping for Friday's Q14 efforts, and polishing of my CEDP. Make sure that is ready by 7th June!
My form group had a rather important GCSE English lit exam today. I feel I am developing a fantastic 'inspirational speech' repetoire now, and I had them all in 'the zone' by ten past nine this morning. I base this psychological enhancement on Cool Runnings.... 'When you look in the mirror, what do you see?'!
To conclude, a big congrats to my fellow GTP, school and department colleague for Shuna for getting a job yesterday, to Gill for becoming a Grandmother recently, and the very best of luck to Barcelona in their quest to smash United 8-0. I'll be Spanish on Saturday.
Keep plugging away people. We're nearly done!
