Level 400 Teacher Trainees across the 46 Public Colleges of Education will from February, 2023 begin their internship(Macro Teaching) in a basic school.
We have gathered all that every trainee should know about Macro Teaching.
What Is Macro Teaching
Macro Teaching is a field experience in which the trainee spends one semester in a basic school setting on teaching practice. The trainee teachers are assigned classes and subjects under the guidance of school-based mentors. The student teachers would observe lessons to be delivered by their mentors and reflect on them, engage in peer planning and delivery of lessons and reflect on them.
The school-based mentors will also guide the trainee to perform the daily classroom routine such as planning and delivering full lessons, the marking of attendance register, and preparation of lesson notes.

Teacher trainees are expected to reflect on these activities and document their reflections.
