Congratulations to our four Canadian Practicum UK students, Allison, Crystal, Lexy and Lindsay on the successful completion of their four week placement here in York.


Individual action plans were developed for each of the four students enabling them to focus on their own areas for development. There was plenty of opportunity for lesson observations, training sessions and teaching as well as continuous evaluation of progress against action plan targets.

The end of the placement was celebrated with certificates presented over a traditional English Afternoon Tea.

Practicum UK is made up of three forward thinking teaching school alliances at the forefront of educational change. These alliances have come together to offer teacher placements and career advancement opportunities for Canadian teachers.

Bradford Birth to 19, Ebor, and the George Spencer Teaching School Alliances are committed to looking for entrepreneurial individuals interested in cutting edge pedagogy, to become highly effective school teachers and school leaders of the future.

With excellent support, great schools and university links, in York, Nottingham and Bradford we’re giving teachers the chance to be the best they can be.
