Best Practice

Why? How? What? The drivers of excellent teaching

When we first become teachers, we must not forget the lessons learnt during our training. In this series, Matt Bromley reminds us of key practical lessons from the ITT programme he delivers. This time he urges us to consider the why, how and what of our teaching...

As I explained in the first part of this series, I am lead lecturer on an initial teacher training (ITT) programme and every Tuesday evening I teach a course that leads my students towards qualified teacher status (QTS).

As I was planning this year’s programme, it occurred to me that much of what I intended to cover was useful not just for those training, but for all early career teachers and indeed many seasoned professionals in search of a refresher.

And so in SecEd this year I will be sharing my ITT journey with you in the hope that I can provide opportunities for you to reflect on your own professional practice and encourage you to try out some new strategies in your classroom.
