This report is focussed on the implementation and evaluation of a Placement Partnership Project (PPP) funded by the Scottish Government, and investigated by the School of Education at the University of Aberdeen. The project piloted a collaborative working approach involving partnership with supporter teachers, university tutors and other associated professionals to support the professional learning of student teachers (and other partners) during and beyond placement.
The PPP emerged from successful partnership working models previously developed by the School of Education, local education authorities and schools. These models include: the Promoting Partnership Team and Northern Partnership Forum; Scottish Teachers for a New Era (STNE) development events involving all stakeholders from STNE partner local education authorities; the provision of CPD events for supporter teachers; and the introduction during BEd4 field experience of joint formative observations of student teachers by university tutor and supporter teacher.
