Recently Qualified Teachers

We have developed a bespoke and strategic training programme for teachers in the second year of their career. The programme explores the fundamental aspects of the teaching standards and combines theoretical understanding with practical activities, useful resources and adaptable methodology for all subject areas. Later sessions in the year introduce data analysis and offer advice and support for career progression and professional development. The programme includes multiple opportunities for the RQTs to discuss their practice and share ideas in a supportive environment. Our aim is to encourage reflection, facilitate professional growth and improve outcomes for all.

The 2016-17 Programme Content includes sessions on:

  • Emotional Intelligence in the classroom
  • The Growth Mindset
  • Student Leadership
  • Mindfulness
  • Higher-Order Thinking skills including Blooms’ Taxonomy for planning and delivery
  • Scaffolding, Deeper Questioning and Independent Learning
  • Metacognition, reflection and how to explicitly demonstrate progress
  • Understanding Data at beginner level
  • Interview techniques for middle leadership positions
