Since 2014, all student placements have been facilitated by the SPS system which is administered by the GTCS.  Independent schools are warmly invited to submit offers to host student teachers during the 2016/17 academic session. 

The aims of this session are: 

  • to provide an opportunity for delegates to gain an overview of the SPS  
  • to provide delegates with a working knowledge regarding:

               input of offers;
               acceptance of students; and
               adjustments to initial offers 

  • To allow delegates the opportunity to engage in a Q&A session. 

Optional pm session:  1.15 - 2.30 p.m.

Delegates are invited to bring a limited number of offers to the event.  In the afternoon there will be an opportunity to engage in a practical exercise and input some data into the system. 

The session will be run by John Adams, Senior Manager Student Support, GTCS. 

Please register by 2 May
