INSET : The teachers’ toolkit for highly effective NQTs

“To say that the first year of teaching is challenging would be an understatement. There are so many moving parts to manage and so many new things to learn that it’s sometimes difficult to know where to start.”

High Impact Teaching Strategies for recently qualified teachers and those returning to the profession

  • How do you make sure that all pupils make progress?
  • What are your in-school Mentors and Inspectors looking for to demonstrate excellent learning?
  • How do you make and impact and get noticed for the right things in your school?
  • What is outstanding behaviour for learning?

Research shows that 4 out of 10 trainees were not teaching six months after leaving university and a further 18 per cent of newly qualified teachers quit within three years. This course will provide a toolkit of excellent ideas and advice relating to all aspects of your first few years of teaching, as well as preparing you for everything the inspectors could throw at you.
The course is designed to consolidate and build on the skills you have learnt in your first year of teaching taking them to a higher level rather than repeating what you already know.
