This course is aimed at recently qualified ASTs or those considering applying to become an AST. Very little seems to be known about ASTs and the work that they do – even inside the profession. The course will go through what an AST is, what can be expected of you, and coping strategies for those first school visits. Actual work done by ASTs would be showcased. This course is NOT about the application process.

  • What is an AST?
  • What an AST is not!
  • Good AST practice
  • Survival strategies; balancing work load etc
  • Making the AST role unique and at the vanguard of classroom practice
  • How to deal with ‘tricky customers’
