Student Handbook


Recommended Posts

Hello folks

I have been asked to compile a new handbook for any student placements that we may have. Has anyone got an example that they could share to give a me something to adapt for our setting. I have a few things in mind but would love some expert advice.

What types of things shoud I be providing them with?

Thank you

Hi Apple I did one a few years back when I was school based tutor for local teacher training providers. I kept it brief (otherwise it wont be read!) and included in it things the things that they wouldn't get in other ways (for example from school prospectus or SDP, class teacher etc) I will see if I can find it int he next few days.


I included things like how we used the photocopier, tea funds, lunches, what happens at assemblies, use of school phones, dress code etc, coordinators and responsibilities, I expected that timetables curriculum coverage, breaks and duties, policies etc would be covered by the class teacher.
