Tickets must be booked at least five days prior to the first session for catering purposes. Group sizes will be limited to 25 participants.


Introduction

Our sessions are aimed at supporting Newly Qualified Teachers in Early years, KS1 and KS2. These sessions are run by a diverse panel of staff from various professional and educational backgrounds. They provide a broad research profile and are committed to supporting exciting and inclusive educational experiences.

Sessions require active participation and are an opportunity to discuss your practice and reflect on your progress. Recent feedback shows that the sessions are engaging, relevant, and beneficial for all participants. During the sessions, there will be time to discuss individual classroom issues, share and develop ideas, and explore solutions to overcome situational dilemmas.


NQT Conference (Spring Term 2019 - Exact date and price to be confirmed)

This one-day conference will focus on supporting the diverse needs of pupils. It will involve keynote lectures and a variety of workshops that you can choose from. More information will be posted soon.


Session 1: Managing Behaviours in the Classroom and Your First Term in Post led by Anna Grant and Sue Dixon

Monday 5th November 2018, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

This session is in two parts. The first part will build on the idea of reflective practice, not only to build a strong foundation for the NQT year ahead, but also into the future as a professional. With a focus on managing behaviours, this session will enable you to deepen your understanding of relationships within the classroom and beyond. Open discussion will provide a forum where you can share experiences and develop your expertise. This will also help you identify your immediate next steps in any challenges that you may be encountering.

The second part is about reflecting on your first term with your own class. What have been your successes? Why? Which aspects of your practice would you like to develop? This session will provide opportunities to celebrate your achievements and actively explore your next steps.

We will draw on action learning sets to support peer support and reflection.

Bring your NQT portfolio to: a) review your Induction Observation(s); b) discuss your targets for the spring term and; c) describe the behaviour management strategies you use.

This session considers: a) who you are as a teacher; who you are as a mathematician, how you can maximise learning opportunities for the child and c) developing good practice in Maths lessons

The Arts are going to have an increased focus in the Ofsted inspections, so we will also examine what this might look like. In the first part of the session we will consider the importance of music in the education. How can music be the initial focus of cross curricular learning? The second part of this session will suggest ways to approach teaching and learning in and through art.

You will be given time to focus on your future as a teacher, including any changes in educational policy.
