We're joined by Chloe Bateman this week, a recent NQT who shares her experiences and wisdom with us. Paul does his best to recall his NQT year, while Will does his best to recall being a teacher. 

Featuring an array of tips that we hope are useful for any Newly Qualified Teachers, mentors and leaders, we also hope this prompts a few trips down memory lane to where it all began for all who listen!

This week we discuss the relationship between middle and senior leaders: when it goes well, where potential issues arise and how to get the most out of talented HoDs/manage upwards when necessary. 

We also discuss the nature of results and the examination system, which was a lot more pressing at the time of recording but is hopefully still of interest!

With the gaps between seasons becoming longer and slightly more erratic, our return sees a reflection on the past year. We consider the value of educational conferences in the context of Will's growing profile, talk about Ed Tech and blogs vs journals, while Paul gets slightly grumpy about Twitter. 

 

Most importantly - we're back!

We talk this week about the list put forward by Ben Newmark last term, outlining all of the activities and approaches he felt hadn't worked in the classroom. The list drew upon his extensive experience and was extremely well-received, so we felt it would be a great starting point for discussion and reflection from our own time at the chalkface. 

From card-sorts and reading races to role-plays and learning styles we consider what makes something a 'success' in the classroom and how to plan to ensure that all students are served in the best possible way.
