Intent: To provide early career teachers in the first two years of their career with:

  • high quality, structured support in order to begin the journey towards becoming an expert
  • the tools to contribute to the development of knowledge, practices and working habits to set participants up for a fulfilling and successful career in teaching.

Implementation: The programme will:

  • be delivered through a workshop approach which will review research and best practice to enhance knowledge in each of the four domains
  • provide practical ideas for skill development
  • thread the theme of professional behaviours and identity through the programme
  • evaluate the evidence base through critical thinking and embed reflective practices to develop their expertise
  • establish a supportive network of colleagues at similar career stages and so work collaboratively to improve specific areas of their own practice.

Impact: Following the event, early career teachers will have an increased understanding of: the best available evidence of behaviour management; pedagogy; curriculum and assessment and have developed their own skills and professional behaviours.
