A Day for NQTs: Reflect, Revitalise, Reboot!

Why should you attend?

You will have learned and achieved a lot in the first three months of your new job, but you might also have reached a point where you need to boost your knowledge and experience in certain key areas of the curriculum, or feel you have used up all of your best ideas. This course gives you the chance to reflect on your experiences so far with other teachers in a similar position, while developing your subject knowledge and your stock of teaching strategies. Deliberately placed towards the end of term, when you are most likely to need some fresh approaches, you will leave with a wide range of resources and ideas that you can put to immediate use.

What will the course cover?

  • Sharing experiences and ideas with other new teachers.
  • Strategies and resources for teaching challenging literature at KS3 and KS4.
  • Strategies and resources for teaching GCSE Language.
  • Teaching close reading. 
  • Teaching vocabulary, grammar and punctuation in context.

NB. This is a repeat course


A fabulous day that delivered on its promise to revitalise and reboot my approach. I feel well-equipped with a range of strategies to tackle classroom issues.
