Workshop facilitator

Charlotte Wright

Name of Workshop

Inspiration and perspiration; creating and maintaining hopeful NQTs

Who is it for?

New teachers and NQT mentors

Brief synopsis of workshop

Media narratives about the NQT year might lead new entrants into the profession into believing it could be all anxiety, panic and exhaustion. But Secret Teacher articles about punitive rites of passage should not be framing our thinking about the NQT year.

This workshop will offer a strong counter-narrative, with practical suggestions about how to make the transition into the NQT year positive and rewarding. Charlotte will share her experiences of working with NQTs across a range of subjects, in a range of different types of school, discuss common challenges, and offer suggestions about how to contribute to an enriching and fortifying NQT culture in your school.

What you will get out of it

Practical ideas – for example about how to manage workload, or what to do after a difficult lesson – and a renewed belief in your own ability to effect educational change.
