Edsential have planned to series of learning events for NQT’s across the region. Delivered over a two week period for Primary and Secondary teachers, these sessions have been designed to give newly qualified teachers additional insight into some of the following areas. Teachers are encouraged to attend as many of the sessions as they possibly can.
Key Note Speaker – Welcome to Teaching and what learning is for? A insight into the reasons why teaching is the career path for you.
Health and Wellbeing – Managing workload and maintaining a work-life balance
SEND – An exploration of the most common and challenging SEND experienced in schools and classrooms including practical and simple strategies to implement to achieve best inclusive practice. This course will increase awareness and understanding of the most common of SEND prevalent in modern schools and equip the newly trained teachers in building relationships and creating positive next steps to building an inclusive environment for all.
Behaviour, Support and Development – This session will focus on developing an ethos of positive behaviour support. The most effective teachers and support staff continually reflect on their behaviour support strategies and challenge themselves to improve. A knowledge that behaviour is a form of communication is essential, and this session will involve recapping and reviewing behaviour support strategies that will help improve teaching and learning.
Assessment – Untangling the complex world of pupil assessment and progress.
This workshop will give you an overview of the statutory assessment procedures that are required by the DfE in all maintained primaries, academies and participating independent schools. You will be provided with an overview and details of the assessments that take place within different stages of the primary curriculum to give you an outline of how each of these feed into the learning journey of pupils in our primary schools. To give you a greater understanding of what evidence is required for the assessment of primary pupils, there will be an opportunity for you to take part in moderation of pupils work at KS1 and KS2. The changes that have been made to statutory assessment for the 2020-2021 assessment cycle as a result of the COVID disruption to education will also be outlined.
All sessions are 4.30pm – 5.30pm and delivered online via Teams or Zoom. Once booked delegates will be sent the meeting details.
