All the Ptlls assignments are listed with a link to a more detailed discussion of each.
The theory part is your essays. All the essay questions for both levels are covered in much greater detail on their own page, just click on the link. The practical section is your scheme of work, session plan, microteach, reflective journal and all that jazz.
The assignments separated in to two sections: the level three and the level four. The content is the same, the difference is in the word count (as in more for level four) and the tone of the questions. Where level three asks you to “describe” something, level four asks you to “review” it. We go in to this more in Ptlls levels.
