    Could you let me know why my starter for five suggestions for support and CPD for starting science teachers has not been shared please ? I submitted it last night (Tues 10th Nov 2015)

    Please accept my apologies for being over zealous! I’m afraid I was rather over hasty in assuming that my submission had been rejected, I do appreciate it was a little bit different from some of the others!

    Sorry Andrew!



    1. We do try to avoid rejecting any posts. Obviously if something is not advice for new teachers on a specific topic, that creates difficulties, but we do make an effort to avoid rejecting for any other reason, so people know they are getting all the advice submitted on a topic and not just the advice that Sarah, or I, happen to select.
