A core part of the course, Educational and Professional Studies (EPS) lectures and seminars bring together student teachers from different curriculum subject areas to explore aspects of education relevant to all teachers.

The aim of this blended programme is to assist you to become aware of and prepared for those aspects of a teacher´s professional practice that extend beyond the immediate concerns of subject teaching. Some of the themes may include: inquiry-based learning (IBL), special educational needs, citizenship education, class management and the teacher-pupil relationship, and teaching and the law.

You will be expected to draw on your experience and make presentations to your fellow student teachers on themes of interest and relevance to yourself and others.
