Those Who Can

We talk this week about the list put forward by Ben Newmark last term, outlining all of the activities and approaches he felt hadn't worked in the classroom. The list drew upon his extensive experience and was extremely well-received, so we felt it would be a great starting point for discussion and reflection from our own time at the chalkface.

Those Who Can

Given Will's role and the on-going challenges facing PGCE courses across the country, we thought it worth spending a little bit of time unpacking exactly what it is that Will does for a living.

Those Who Can

The second episode of this season sees us debating the worth of extra-curricular activities. Often a large part of school life, do they distract too much from the core work of teachers, and is enough done in recognition of the efforts that are put in?

Heads of Department should be the engine room of any school. Ensuring that this is the case, without becoming overburdened by admin or losing trust in colleagues is the topic we unpick this week.

Those Who Can

This week sees us talk about what got us into teaching in the first place, as well as offer thoughts on whether it has been all we expected. We also talk about what has inspired us over the course of the past year, as well as the ways in which we have learned from those around us.

Those Who Can

This episode sees us try to tackle workload head on, and inevitably only scratch the surface of what is an enormous issue in teaching. Paul and Will reflect on ways in which this might start to happen on an individual-teacher basis, while also offering some thoughts on where the issues stem from.
