'Positive Placements provides student teachers from whatever background with a comprehensive and highly accessible support tool. It covers an impressively broad range of the subjects and issues that concern those considering and following Initial Teacher Education courses. The use of a simple, easily navigable approach with helpfully illustrative case-studies ensures that readers can find reassuring examples and authoritative guidance to support their own learning as they prepare for the teaching profession.' Simon Asquith, Chair of the Association for Partnership in Teacher Education and Director of School Partnerships, University of Cumbria, UK
'Positive Placements is a valuable resource for students considering undertaking a placement as well as those whose placements are already underway. Helpful suggestions for planning and thinking ahead abound in the book, as well as support for keeping on track and workable strategies for on-going and summative reflection and self-evaluation. Reporting on placements in traditional and non-school settings both at home and abroad, the students' voices throughout ensure a lively read. Their honesty is refreshing and their concerns are comforting, showing readers that their worries are understandable, but not insurmountable. The book is practical, with ample constructive guidance, for example, on keeping lively and purposeful journals. All the way through the book, prompts and questions encourage readers to consider the relevant ideas and relate the content to their own situation. This book is recommended for all students who undergo placements and for their support tutors and mentors.' Carrie Winstanley, National Teaching Fellow and Principal Lecturer in Education, Learning and Teaching, Roehampton University, UK
