This programme is specifically designed for teachers in their second year of the profession,  giving them the opportunity to deepen and refine their practice and engage with the very latest evidence-informed research. The content of sessions draws upon the second year of knowledge content from the new Early Career Framework Development Programme and the strategies they can use to adapt and implement these in their own classroom context. Attendees will have the opportunity to reflect and share experiences with one another and facilitators who will adapt the sessions to meet the professional development needs of the cohort through a pre-session survey.

Session 1

As RQTs begin their second year of teaching, this first session will embed the strategies they have learned around establishing a positive climate for learning. This session will reinforce an RQTs understanding an introduce further techniques to help them develop a secure, safe and predictable environment in which pupils are challenged and supported to reach their potential.

During this session, we will explore the concept of motivation whilst considering the link between maintaining high expectations and your pupils feeling motivated to work hard.  They will consider strategies that they can implement to support pupil motivation and other key ways to establish a positive climate for learning.

RQTs will think about the importance of how to plan appropriate challenge for all pupils to enable them to achieve. During the session they will explore the recommendations set out within the latest evidence informed research and consider strategies to enable them to apply these within their own specific context.
