Abstract

Creativity outside convention discusses an Excellence and Enjoyment driven theme week school placement for primary postgraduate students at St. Martin’s College that took place in March 2005. Within this paper we evaluate the contribution made to the education of the student teachers and highlight benefits and areas to improve from the viewpoints of all the main stakeholders: students, teachers, college tutors and children. We also explore its success in relation to a key aim of asking the students to plan and teach in collaboration with each other whilst allowing curriculum subjects to collaborate with each other under a freedom of removed assessment constraints. Excellence and Enjoyment is about allowing the students to be excellent and enjoy the business of teaching. We aimed to facilitate this whilst developing skills of reflection, collaboration and dialogue.
