The SecEd Podcast: Creating confident teachers

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

This SecEd Podcast offers practical ideas to help us develop and support teachers to be confident and effective in the classroom

In this SecEd Podcast, produced in partnership with Access 1st, producers of the SEN-HUB CPD service, we discuss practical ideas and approaches to support teachers to be confident and effective in their practice.

We consider what a confident teacher looks like, themes of CPD and wider school support, school culture and collegiate working, school leadership, staff wellbeing and mental health among other issues.

Pete Henshaw, editor of SecEd, gets ideas and tips from Mark Grimmett, a lead practitioner and teacher of mathematics at Guildford County School, David Higginbottom, an assistant headteacher at the Gosport and Fareham Multi-Academy Trust, and Penny Georgiou, director of Access 1st
