This book has been revised for 2019 and will be especially useful for those colleagues new to teaching and also for those returning to the profession.
It is a practical guide to the elements of the role that will ensure effective induction into classroom practice.
It includes sections on:
- Classroom organisation and management
- Behaviour and expectations
- Dealing with the first of everything: parents evening, report writing, organising a trip etc.
- Planning, marking and assessment
There are individual sections on many areas connected with improving learning and the importance of school policies including safeguarding.
The book also looks at professional development for new teachers and gives practical advice on managing time and workload.
Throughout the publication there are helpful lists which remind NQTs what they need to ask or check.
This publication will also help NQT mentors structure the induction programme for new teachers.
