Assessment of the Teaching Practice
This component is assessed by practice visitors who conduct classroom observations and support the course participants’ development through feedback and recommendations on practice. Course participants will also be assessed on a Teaching Practice file/Practicum documentation, which needs to be kept up-to-date throughout the placement period.
Recognition of the qualifications for the teaching profession
Teaching Practice is a vital component of initial teacher training programmes as it provides an opportunity for the learners to put theory into practice and to self-reflect on teaching and assessment methods employed in the classroom. Furthermore, this module is an integral part of the programme which will also contribute towards partially fulfilling the requirements outlined by the Council for the Teaching Profession (CTP) with respect to applications for a teacher’s warrant.
If you’re interested in obtaining a permanent warrant for the Teaching Profession, you’ll need to contact the CTP. This regulatory body oversees the teaching profession in Malta, and they can provide you with information on the necessary requirements for access. It is worth noting that while the IfE is a recognized awarding body for teaching degrees, the council for the teaching profession is responsible for granting access and warrant to employment within the field.
