What is your advice about? Professional Development
1: Never stop learning – read about teaching, pedagogy, psychology, your “subject”.
2: Own your personal development. Pitch to SLT the courses / development you want as opposed to being a passenger on “whole school” sheep-dips.
3: Be evidence based. Only implement interventions when there is evidence to support the claimed impact.
4: Create a blog as a reflective journal of your thoughts / ideas.
5: Junk the energy zappers – don’t huddle in corners bemoaning SLT. Present solutions and ideas, not complaints.
