Description

Working in post-compulsory education can sometimes feel like being "in at the deep end": teaching a highly diverse and sometimes challenging student group, trying to manage a rapidly changing and developing curriculum, a generally increasing workload and working with a level of bureaucracy that could defeat the faint-hearted-and that just takes care of Monday and Tuesday! The difference between sinking and swimming can be a small one...This positive and practical "survival" guide will help teachers to effectively manage these varied demands by offering friendly, professional advice and support on: * Meeting the initial challenges, working positively with students, supporting key skills and basic skills * Accessing support, working with colleagues and managing conflict * Handling challenging behavior, making positive use of ICT and teaching specialist subjects * Managing inspections, developing as a leader and becoming a reflective professional Lively and engaging, this book will help all new teachers overcome everyday problems and pressures to keep their "heads above water" and become efficient, skilled professionals in the post-compulsory workplace.show more
