AET will be working with Ark Teacher Training to deliver initial teacher education across the trust.
Over the year you will have regular training sessions which are focused on how to be a great teacher of Biology. During these sessions, we will cover a range of teaching approaches to Biology and you will have the chance to share resources and ideas between your own school and other partner schools. By collaborating like this, all our teachers have great support, and all our pupils receive the best possible education.
As part of the course you will:
Have a school orientation experience: before your course starts you will spend time in your school, meeting your new colleagues and interacting with pupils so you can hit the ground running in September.
Join a summer school: all new trainees come together over two weeks in August for an introduction to the programme, our schools and the principles of great teaching. You’ll also cover the essential elements of behaviour management, so you are ready for day one.
Have weekly coaching and learning to plan: every week you’ll be observed by your in-school coach, so they can offer you positive feedback and bite-sized improvement targets.
Have a trained lead planner who will help you create effective lessons, developing your planning skills and giving you the opportunity to ask detailed subject -knowledge questions.
Attend weekly training: these are in-person training sessions with your tutors/peers
