What is your advice about? Surviving your NQT year

1: Teaching takes up a lot of free time, so make sure to keep one evening a week free and one day at the weekend.

2: Remember you are still learning. Don’t expect perfection from yourself.

3: Take advantage of the extra frees you have to observe more experienced members of staff in and out of your curriculum area.

4: Make a marking timetable and stick to it.

5: You don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Share and use shared resources in your department.
