Secondary NQT Training - 2019/20
At Bexley we are passionate about helping and supporting our NQTs at this crucial stage of their career. We therefore offer a focused programme of professional development for our NQTs. By offering high-quality support, using the expertise within Bexley to share everything we know about being an effective teacher, we can help make your NQT induction a positive start to your teaching career. Across London, training by Appropriate Bodies for secondary NQTs is very limited we are one of a few ABs that offer a comprehensive training schedule for NQTs. The NFER in their recent annual report (25 Feb 2019) cited that ‘the secondary system is facing a substantial teacher supply challenge over the next decade, which requires urgent action.’ They also found that ‘…retention rates of early-career teachers (between two and five years into their careers) have dropped significantly between 2012 and 2018.’ As a local authority, we need to provide support in order to recruit and retain a skilled workforce in order to improve the life chances of our children in Bexley schools and beyond. This training programme provides high quality professional development and learning opportunities that will enable teachers new to the profession to meet the Teachers’ Standards and become a truly effective and successful teacher. The programme runs over four terms and includes facilitated sessions led by experienced practitioners and advisors. Teachers will regularly have the opportunity to observe and learn from excellent teachers throughout the year. NQTs will benefit from experienced facilitators to gain strategies for immediate use to demonstrate impact within their own classrooms. Examples of sessions provided are: • Autism • Behaviour for Learning • Exploring Data and Progress against Progress 8 • Challenge & Differentiation • Being a Form Tutor • Behaviour for Learning • Transgender Awareness

EYFSP Central Validation/Moderation - 20200623CtrlValid - (23 June 2020, 09.00 - 10.00)
Teachers in schools that are not receiving a local authority EYFSP external moderation visit may wish to take the opportunity to attend one of the free one-hour validation/moderation sessions to discuss sample children’s Profiles in order to moderate their assessments and feel confident in their judgements. The sessions will be led by the EYFSP Moderation Manager. School-based moderators will facilitate small moderation groups, whilst an LA Lead moderator will offer individual surgery slots for teachers who may wish to discuss specific children’s outcomes, for example; ‘on-the-cusp/threshold’ assessments. Participants attending one of these sessions should bring along 3 sample Profiles to share and discuss. The aim is to ensure consistency of judgements across the early Learning Goals (ELGs). The National Exemplification Materials will be used during these moderation/validation sessions. Reference will also be made to the STA 2018 ARA & Profile Handbook.
