Chiltern Teaching School Alliance trained a selection of pupils to become teaching partners whose role is to observe trainees delivering lessons using a behaviour management observation sheet. Teaching partners share their observations with trainees on the same day and trainees implement the changes in their next lesson.

Suffolk & Norfolk Primary SCITT uses a skills audit form to provide a baseline assessment of the trainee’s behaviour management skills, showing their strengths and areas for development along the continuum of one to five.
Mentors complete the audit in week two of a placement, after informal observations of the trainee. The audit is reviewed weekly throughout the placement to show trainee progress and to inform future targets and support.
