Three NQTs discuss their first year and their hopes for the next Follow three NQTs through their first year of teaching, from the first day in the classroom to their feelings about their impending second year.
Stuart Tatterton discovers how to balance a busy home life with intense marking and planning pressures at school, gaining confidence and a more relaxed approach to teaching along the way. Claire Hewitt focuses on developing her GCSE teaching abilities with the help of her mentor and colleagues while Kenneth Carmichael enjoys developing his relationship with pupils through his role as a form tutor.
Although the teachers talk honestly about some of the difficulties they’ve encountered, they are all quick to highlight the good times and their enthusiasm for the forthcoming year.
This programme would be of value to all PGCE students, NQTs and senior management.
