Teaching Skills

Carousel imageCarousel imageCarousel image

Teaching is one of the most rewarding jobs there is. The opportunity to work with children and young people and share their experiences as they develop and explore the world under your guidance is a remarkable privilege. It is a complex job with many subtle nuances that can affect the success or otherwise of the teacher’s ability to support children’s learning.

Today’s teachers require many tools and tricks in their toolkit so that they can be flexible in their delivery of learning experiences and respond appropriately to the needs of their learners. OfSTED in particular is looking for teachers that responsively deploy effective strategies and it only a confident teacher with a clarity of understanding that can do this well.

The support below offers a comprehensive suite of activities that can benefit teachers new to the profession or those that have seen much change over the years.
