Session 5 (webinar) will be hosted by Jason Horne and the focus will be on ‘Maths Mastery’, destroying the myths and equipping NQTs with a range of strategies ready for next year.

The transition from Student teacher to NQT can sometimes seem overwhelming and the Primary Induction programme has been designed to ensure that these first steps are built on a strong foundation.

These sessions are designed to be interactive and delegates are asked to come prepared to play an active part, they are very full sessions and would ask delegates to arrive in good time.

Following feedback from NQTs/schools and in line with recently announced DFE initiatives we have decided to redesign the primary programme, there will always be something which needs to be covered earlier but we have tried to address as many areas as possible.
This year there will be five sessions starting in term 2 each session will be 3 hours in length and broken down to cover aspects identified by delegates and a main theme the first session will start in Term 2
Session 1
Being successful in induction 30 mins this will build on the online “Guide to successful induction” and show examples of what good evidence will look like and access to range or free resources.

Mental health and well being 2 hours this session will help prepared delegates for the introduction of teaching mental health issues and provide strategies on how to deal with the stresses and strains of classroom life. The overall aim of the session is to give delegates an understanding of how mental health issues can affect the way that students learn and how this may impact in the daily dynamic of the classroom environment.
