What our NQTs say

It is so useful to have the opportunity to discuss and brainstorm with teachers in the same year groups.” .

After coming to this session I feel my planning will improve, thinking carefully about short activities to carefully manage behaviour.

This session was great, allowed me to really reflect on my own teaching. I will take lots back to school with me.

I feel I have developed strategies for improved learning and behaviour, especially pace of lesson.

It was really beneficial to observe a lesson and learn how activities I am conducting are appropriate and beneficial.
