Abstract:

Meet some of the trainees from the 600 wanna-be teachers at the Metropolitan University in Manchester. In just 10 months, some of them will have jobs teaching at secondary schools. But they are warned that "for every person who wants to teach, approximately 30 do not want to learn." After only two weeks at the university, the trainees are sent in to school to watch other teachers at work. For beauty therapist and hairdresser Lisa, it’s a dream come true. But for 21-year-old Paula, being in the classroom proves difficult, especially when she overhears some of the pupils’ rather personal comments. After two weeks of observing others, 21-year-old Lee gets ready to team teach his first lesson. He has to give a lesson on volcanoes, which he’s never studied before. But he’s more worried about how the kids will react to his youthful appearance.
