    We don't generally give them email addresses, but if they have to use the VLE which is increasingly likely then we do, tbh though most of them don't use it.

    PGCE Students - Email Access

    Yes we do...not quite sure how this ties in with the whole confidentiality agreement/rules about "looked after" students i.e. those from broken families etc. You can of course just give them limited access to things (i.e. create a "student teacher" group in exchange so they only see the messages they need to and nothing else).

    regards

    Generally no but if someone needs one for a specific purpose then we will consider it.

    We give e-mail addresses, we delegate control to HoDs and the co-ordinator. We used to give just webmail access, most of ours never touch the VLE.. much like the teachers.

    We have generic ones which are used for each person. IE we have 3 PGCE students each year and its set like this

    PGCE1@xxxxxx.beds.sch.uk
    PGCE2@xxxxxx.beds.sch.uk
    PGCE3@xxxxxx.beds.sch.uk

    Each persons email details are sent around the school the day that they arrive.

    Cheers for the replies we have 15 at a time just thinking about the best way to do it. Give them generic one or create individual accounts

    Well I generally try and operate of the principle of granting least privileges for people to do their jobs and here, in general, PGCE students don't need an email account.

    The idea is that in the event that if resources are misused I don't want the school to be in the position where someone could say 'why did they have access to those resources in the first place?'

    I totally understand! They're very limited on resources they can access, only the department area they're teaching in usually. I just think email is used for sharing important teaching resources. It's also used for network notifications. We disable the email addresses as soon as they leave.

    We do as it integrates them in slightly better, but we also give them the full IT & DP talk as part of their PGCE induction & get them to sign the AUPs.

    We provide them with e-mail addresses here, they wouldn't be able to do their job properly if we didn't as the majority of communication is now done via e-mail. The trays in the staff room are now used for external mail coming into the school only.
