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.
