Catch up: What they don’t teach you in training


An on-demand event jointly hosted by the NAHT and Discovery Education.

Whatever your route into teaching, there are some things they just didn’t teach you and you weren’t in any school long enough to pick them up via osmosis. Teacher training courses tell you how to teach, but there is a whole other set of rules (and guidance) which will not only help you to reach your full potential as a teacher, but also help you to avoid the pitfalls which you don’t even realise exist until you’re knee-deep in them. Experienced teacher, Omar Akbar, considers strategies and tips to help you thrive in teaching.
