NQT Induction Training 2018-19

Barton Peveril College

24 June 2019

This is the package training from the Wessex Group for NQTs, spanning the first year. As well as useful, informative and professionally delivered content, the NQTs are immediately part of a network of like-minded individuals who they are likely to meet again in their careers within and outside the Wessex Group of colleges. This network can be a great support group for them, especially in this first year.

Day 1: Now you are teaching! Including practical tips

  • Introduction to the network
  • Effective marking and feedback
  • Insight from a recent NQT
  • Look after your students and look after yourself too
  • Good ideas for delivering great teaching
  • Maximising time by working smart – realistic lesson planning

Day 2: Managing Classroom Behaviour delivered by highly-rated external trainer Andy Vass

Day 3: Students' Mental Wellbeing

The topic is "Supporting Students with Mental Health Challenges in 2019", and will be led by Sally-Anne Spooner, Director of HR, Queen Mary's College and Darren Della Maestra, Head of Student Support, Alton College.  The session will provide information, explore scenarios and introduce strategies to look after yourself and others.  It includes a 'toolkit' of practical and effective ideas for responding to crises and what to do next. 
Specifically, the session will provide;
  • an opportunity to discuss routes of referral and expectations
  • an understanding of the different types of mental health concerns and related warning signs
  • the provision of a supportive setting to discuss any concerns and explore mental health matters
  • increased confidence in initial conversations

Day 4: What lies ahead?

  • Professional reflection – how to keep it up
  • Career and professional development
  • Panel Q&A

Booking must be done via your college Staff Development Officer asap and at latest by the closing date of Thursday, 11th October 2018.  Joining instructions and confirmation of a place will take place soon after that date. The charge for the package of 4 sessions is £90 per head.
