Having mentored Arifah throughout the second placement of her PGCE course from January 2017 until July 2017, I was able to watch Arifah teach many lessons. All of these were good or outstanding due to her clear planning, excellent explanations, dedication to self-improvement and extra provision for students with particular needs. She supported GCSE students who were borderline between grades 3/4/5. She also ran A-level revision classes. The groups she worked with achieved the levels of progress that we would expect from an experienced teacher. Arifah had a good nature that endeared her to her department colleagues and was a reliable member of our department, offering her help whenever the need arose.
