Reinforcing 'Using & Applying' in Primary Maths

So you want to be a Successful Primary Assistant/Deputy Head?

Primary & Early Years
The reality of the leadership role can be both exciting and daunting in terms of both challenge and opportunity. This course uses an eclectic mix of discourse and activity to consider both challenge and opportunity and to offer practical steps to gain success. Consideration of success includes securing a leadership post, then one's impact on pupils, parents, governors, support staff, teaching staff, other members of Leadership and the school's external partners.

Survive and Sparkle in Primary Spanish

Primary & Early Years
The course will equip staff who do not speak Spanish with a basic armoury of classroom language, and show them practical ways of retaining and increasing their knowledge afterwards. Staff with previously unhappy memories of language learning will leave feeling reassured and encouraged.

Teachers with any level of Spanish will have the opportunity to participate in a range of practical, enjoyable activities that can be used immediately in the classroom and easily adapted for use across all contexts and age groups.

Teaching Assistants and EAL: Meeting the Demands of your Role Effectively supporting students learning English as an Additional Language

Primary & Early Years

The Teaching Assistant (TA) plays an essential role in the drive to raise standards in schools. In addition to the support provided for students with learning difficulties and disabilities, the TA may also be required to support groups of students for whom English is an additional language (EAL) both in whole class and small group teaching and learning situations. Those supporting EAL students are at the forefront of removing barriers to learning and inclusion.
