Dr Kristy Turner

Name of Workshop

Choose your own adventure: finding fulfilment in your teaching career

Who is it for

All delegates

Brief synopsis of workshop :

What should a teaching career look like? A series of steps upwards from trainee and NQT through various TLRs to the dizzying heights of management?  This workshop will encourage you to reconnect with you’re the reasons you became a teacher and help you to think about creative ways to approach a teaching career as a long and winding road rather than a relentless march to the top.  Along the way I’ll discuss the various projects I am involved with and those I lead ‘from the bottom’ and discuss the role of personal fulfilment in maintaining a rewarding career in teaching.

What you will get out of it:

A bit of reflection and hopefully some inspiration.
