Trainee’s comment I feel some of the comments and observations made in this assessment are somewhat harsh. The mention of AFL as an area for development is, I feel, somewhat of a kop out. There have been several examples where I have been observed by college and received positive feedback in the area of AFL. Furthermore, to fully and effectively implement AFL into classroom practice, it would be logical to keep me with the same group of children in KS1 who I’ve worked well with this term, despite receiving little support, and give me a consistent timetable into term 5. Instead, I will be placed into Foundation again next term where the children are not yet using LI’s and Steps, therefore it’s difficult to implement AFL in an explicit manor. AFL can be used throughout the day/lesson, and I do this, so I fail to understand why it is constantly mentioned as an area for development. I’m told the school is doing there best to look after my interests and progression, but my listening to my emerging needs and doing the opposite, I can’t help but feel somewhat un-supported.

ITT Co-ordinator’s comments It is absolutely imperative that Glenn uses Afl as an integral part of his day to day teaching. This is a recurring development feature of the above assessment. Glenn is receiving focussed support from his mentor, however he still needs to consistently demonstrate a commitment to the teaching, planning and organisation of his lessons and sessions if he is to be able to take full responsibility for a whole class for longer periods in the future.
