London School of Education Programme (Fall)

Programme Overview

General programme information may be found at Boston University Study Abroad.

Students are placed at schools throughout London through Roehampton’s placements office. Each student is appointed a tutor at Roehampton to monitor the student’s classroom performance and to act as a resource if the student has any questions or concerns. In addition to their teaching practicum, the students on this programme take the liberal arts course, SO 301: British Education.

This course is taught by Roehampton faculty throughout the term and is scheduled around the students’ teaching hours.

Students will begin their full-time teaching placements during the third week in London. Over the course of the semester the student teacher will work with the cooperating teacher to increase their responsibility in the classroom. The practicum experience will culminate in a 2 week takeover; teaching all lessons, guiding transitions, completing markings, etc. Students are supported by their cooperating teachers as well as their practicum tutor. Evaluations will be conducted throughout the semester.
