What is your advice about? First day at work

  1. Take lots notes. Ask questions. Mostly listen and take in your environment.
  2. Make sure you are set up in terms of planning for your lessons for the first few days and have a working knowledge of behaviour policy.
  3. Make sure you are set up with admin stuff, such as SIMS, ICT and access logins as well as knowing your way around the photocopier.
  4. Meet the key people in the school early. Admin staff, site manager and canteen staff. All key to making the school run smoothly.
  5. Smile and don’t be afraid of asking questions. Don’t just mix with your department. Teaching is a team game.
