Suitable for: Newly- and recently-qualified teachers (NQTs/RQTs) in both the primary and secondary phase of education. It provides generic – but practical – advice on pedagogy and practice and is therefore ideal for teachers of all subjects. This course will also be of benefit to school leaders with responsibility for coaching and mentoring NQTs/RQTs and for those who lead on teacher professional development.
Phases suitable for:
Great teaching is about sensitivity and adaptation, about a warm interaction between a teacher and a student, and about adjusting to the here-and-now circumstances of the classroom. As such, there is no silver bullet but we can learn a lot from the field of cognitive science about how the brain works and, therefore, which strategies and techniques can deepen and strengthen our students’ capacity for learning.
