Planning & Learning Activities

Every lesson by LJMU ITE trainees should be planned in advance and evaluated subsequent to the lesson. LJMU ITE trainees are expected to start medium term planning for sequences of lessons (i.e. Units of Work) as soon as the school identifies the trainee is able to undertake this level of planning.

Trainees may use:

  • the LJMU planning pro formas
  • their Home-school planning pro forma
  • create their own planning pro formas

Providing options (b) and (c) meet the minimum requirements, as outlined in The LJMU guide to lesson planning. Liaison tutors will check lesson planning is of sufficient quality during the induction visit.

If a mentor or university tutor considers lesson planning to be of insufficient quality, trainees will be required to use the LJMU pro forma until planning improves.
