Guidance on writing your PortfolioYour portfolio should be presented in the following order and must include:1. An introduction:A brief description of the context within which observations are carried out (egtype of school/college, rural/city location, year group).2. The Diary:An ongoing summary in the form of a field diary of events, activities and criticalreflection (you can choose your own diary layout but see the following page for an example of adiary template):It is useful to write your diary of each session as you go along – do NOT leave this oryou will have forgotten many of your experiences and insights, and this will be reflected in the qualityof your work.This section should not exceed 1800 words (approximately 100 words per entry). Your diary (in theform of raw notes) is likely to be longer than this to begin with but you will need to select the mostrelevant and appropriate parts to present for the purpose of the portfolio. These entries shouldprovide a basis for the learning activity.3. Learning Activity:This section must provide a justification and critical evaluation of your learningactivity. The activity can be with an individual pupil, a small group or with the whole class.Importantly, the activity must relate to your observations providing you with a cause for introducingthe learning activity. In planning your learning activity, you will need to demonstrate that you havedrawn on relevant literature to inform the planning and delivery of the activity. You should concludewith a critical evaluation of the impact of the activity with direct reference to relevant literature andreflective practice. You should also comment on the implications for your practice and/or futurecareer development. This section will form the most substantial part of your portfolio and shouldmeet all the learning outcomes (2700 words).4. References and Appendices:A comprehensive reference list and, if appropriate, appendices ifthey are relevant to your work, such as any learning resources used, lesson plans (see later examplein handbook), etc. However, do not insert materials if you do not make reference to them in yourwork. Please follow the Harvard system of referencing (see later guidelines).
