You will then use their medium term plans to create weekly objectives and plans to ensure you are planning for progression and making an impact in school. You may be expected to deliver both Core and Foundation subjects across a number of year groups- it is therefore important that you have a good primary subject knowledge as well as a sound pedagogy.
