Proof of supervised teaching practice(s) should be issued by the granting body of the qualification with an official letterhead and stamp. “Supervised teaching practice” here refers to the required component of a teacher training programme where student teachers are supervised on-site by staff of the awarding institution while teaching in schools and other educational settings. The duration of supervised teaching practice should refer to the period(s) student teachers are actually teaching on-site; period(s) that cover work of student teachers before the start of the supervised teaching practice and any other post-practice off-site activities should not be included. Samples of supervised teaching practice proof are available here for reference.
Please note that if the required supervised teaching practice(s) was conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic and staff of the granting body could not conduct the normally assigned on-site visit(s), the granting body should provide details of the interim arrangement(s)/measure(s) put in place for supervision/assessment for HKCAAVQ’s special consideration.
