Standards (DfE 2012) and enter the teaching profession. The emphasis will be on the ?whole?, e.g. ways of interlinking key aspects of practice and the wider role of the teacher. As the trainees move through this module of study there will be an increasing emphasis on analysing the primary practices experienced by the trainees with a consideration of contemporary issues and research.
