It's wonderful that you are still so supportive of your trainees after they've left and I always feel re-energised after my visits.
The Course Managers and Teaching Team maintain regular communication with former trainees to support Early Careers teachers in their professional development. Examples of this support include continuing access to Moodle, regular announcements for Newly Qualified Teachers and Recently Qualified Teachers about Faculty events and CPD opportunities, access to Faculty course support and ongoing behaviour manager access.
'The conference was wonderful - I left feeling happy, inspired and exceptionally lucky to be in this profession.'
The Faculty organises an annual NQT day conference which provides high quality CPD from leading researchers and practitioners in education as well as the opportunity to share experiences mid-way through the first year of teaching. Details are sent out to all former primary and secondary trainees and partnership schools.
