What are the benefits of paying the tuition fees?
- You are not employed by your placement school so you have a different role in the school. You are not responsible for the progress and the attainment of classes from the start of the course.
- You will always have an experienced teaching professional in the class with you providing you with formal and informal feedback about your progress. Your teaching timetable is gradually increased and personalised at a pace which is appropriate for you.
- You will be registered as a student at University of Suffolk and that will provide with you all the benefits of being a student- reduced travel costs and council tax; discounts in retail stores etc. More details about benefits of being enrolled as a student at University of Suffolk can be found here https://www.uos.ac.uk/content/infozone.
Will I receive any travel expenses?
Unfortunately, you will need to pay for you own travel expenses. However, we do try to place you at a placement school within 40 minutes drive or equivalent on public transport. We also encourage lift-sharing within our community of students for travelling to and from Core Training.
