You’ll soon get into the routine of a day on the course. Although the first couple of days are a little different, a standard day will look something like this:
9.00 – 10.00 Input session
10.00 – 10.15 TP group meeting
10.15 – 11.00 Break and preparation for teaching
11.00 – 13.00 Teaching Practice
13.00 – 13.30 Break and writing reflections
13.30 – 14.00 Feedback
14.00 – 14.30 TP Guidance
14.30 – 16.00 Lunch
16.00 – 18.00 Input sessions
The timetable may vary slightly, but this is generally what you’ll be doing from Monday to Thursday for five weeks. Whilst the course finishes at 6pm, you’ll need to use time in the evenings to prepare your lessons and work on assignments. This is also true of the three-day weekend, though you’ll have some time to get out and enjoy everything Cádiz has to offer.
At the start of the course, we’ll give you the five-week timetable on which you’ll see clearly the days you’re teaching and the deadlines for the different assignments. Time management and organisation are key skills you’ll need for the course as it’s important to stay on top of things.
