- Are you thinking of going back into the classroom but are concerned about all the changes which have taken place since you took time away from teaching?
- Have you lost confidence in your teaching ability?
Our Return to Teaching course aims to help you over those hurdles and back into the classroom.
If you are keen to get back into school but are unsure about the National Curriculum, statutory assessment, what teaching in Early Years looks like now and so on, then this course is definitely for you. Read on to find out more.
Live online learning
The majority of the course will be delivered through live online learning sessions. These will cover a variety of aspects including the primary National Curriculum, the Ofsted Inspection framework, statutory assessment and teaching in Early Years. In particular, time will be devoted to the key elements of English and mathematics including exploring a range of strategies and practical ideas for teaching.
The live sessions will be interactive with opportunities to ask questions and interact with the tutor and with other course participants.
Self-Study Modules and Independent Learning
The self-study modules will be available through the Juniper Education App from our partner Anspear. These are interactive modules which can be accessed via a mobile device either in one session of about 2 hours or by breaking it down into small chunks. The self-study modules are Managing Behaviour, Child Protection and Marking and Feedback.
In addition, between the live sessions, delegates will be asked to complete gap tasks including reading and research. They will also be required to do a pre-course task.
Applying for Jobs
During the course, time will be devoted to the job application process including completing an application form, selecting referees and preparing for an interview.
The course tutor will be available throughout the course to respond to queries and provide support. The training sessions will be geared to the needs of the group and where delegates require further training and support, for example more in greater knowledge of the English and mathematics curriculum, they will be signposted to other courses they may wish to attend.
