The practical courses PiP1a, PiP1b and PiP2 are aimed at gaining the necessary teaching experience and teaching competences in practice.|
PiP1b is the follow-up to PiP1a and takes place at the same internship school. During PiP1b, the lio takes the step from supervised teaching to independent teaching.
The largest part of the course takes place at the internship school. U-TEAch students do their internship at a TTO (bilingual) school or an international school. The U-TEAch coordinator selects the placement school for each student. It is not allowed to arrange your own internship.
The full-time lio is available for the internship for eight half-days and is present at school for at least six half-days, spread over four days. On a part-time basis the lio is present at school for about three half-days spread over two/three days. During PiP1b, the lio has to observe 25 lessons and teach 40 lessons independently (based on lessons of 50 minutes), in the lower grades.
At school, the student is supervised by an internship supervisor who teaches the same school subject. In addition the lio receives a lesson visit by the teacher of the Professional in Practice course at least once. On Mondays, PiP1-ers follow education at the university, in a permanent working group, in which they work on their own professional development. In these seminars practical experiences are discussed through peer review. The course is concluded with a portfolio.
The courses PiP1a and PiP1b and the courses Subject methodology 1 and Teaching methodology 1 are closely related. It is therefore mandatory to take these courses side by side. In addition, U-TEAch students also take Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) alongside PiP1.
The course PiP1 can also be followed in the job variant. The job has to meet the following requirements:
- You are working in secondary education at a regular (bilingual or international) school in the Netherlands (i.e. NOT special education, secondary vocational education, a university of applied sciences (hbo) or a private school), with a minimum group size of 20 pupils, as a teacher in the school subject in which you want to obtain a qualification;
- you have a colleague as supervisor and assessor, who makes time for this and has affinity with coaching;
- you are available on Mondays to attend classes at Utrecht University;
- you teach at least six hours (of 50 minutes) per week and you have a maximum appointment of 0.5 FTE for the fulltime programme and 0.8 FTE for the parttime programme.
You can find detailed information about the internships in the internship brochure, which can be requested via firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Starting PiP1b is only possible after a positive assessment of PiP1a.
