It's been a busy term for our School Direct trainees who started their school placements at the beginning of September. Since then they have been gradually building their experience of teaching, starting with supporting small groups in the classroom and becoming increasingly confident to plan and teach whole lessons under the guidance of their mentor. We've been very impressed with the way which they've contributed to their schools and proud of their resilience in trying times.
They've also had conferences from school experts and consultants on the following areas:
The Science of Learning
Teach Like A Champion strategies; No Opt Out, Be Seen to be Looking, Positive Framing, Least Invasive Intervention
The importance of relationships in managing behaviour
Wellbeing and mental health
Curriculum Planning & Sequencing
SEND; Green Lane Special School
