PGCE Practice Tutors – preconceptions, perceptions and actuality

Lee, Clare; Addison-Pettit, Paula and Tyler, Dave (2021). PGCE Practice Tutors – preconceptions, perceptions and actuality. In Praxis Report PRAXIS, Milton Keynes.


This study explores how those who have taken on the role of a practice tutor within the PGCE in Wales see and action their role. Five practice tutors are interviewed and the characteristics and experiences that they bring to the role are outlined. It is clear that these professionals understand the complex role of a mentor and bring their understanding, experience and enthusiasm to the role. They increase our understanding of what it means to take on a role that bridges a potential divide between school practice and university knowledge and how to support professionals taking on that role.
