So you've finished your teacher training and found yourself a job... the hard bit is over, right? But, hold on, how do you actually survive your FIRST YEAR in teaching?! The NQT year is notoriously difficult and hard work. Challenges include meeting your new colleagues and making the right first impression, preparing and planning your lessons, managing the mountain of marking and most scary of all... being in charge of a whole class by yourself for the first time! But don't panic - help is at hand from expert teacher and education writer Sue Cowley. In this new edition of her bestselling book, she supports new teachers through the stresses and strains, and the highs and lows, of their first year in teaching. She's there to guide you right from the start of day one, lesson one, with the acknowledgement that 'your stomach feels like lead and your mouth feels as dry as the Sahara desert'. She's there through each term advising on time-saving lesson plans, easy-to-implement behaviour management tips and how to help children who have special educational needs. She's there right until the end of the year when she ensures that you feel triumphantly on top of report writing and your first parents' evening. All of her methods are tried-and-tested and real-life case studies exemplify how (and how not) to put them into practice. This new edition has been fully updated with new diagrams and checklists to boost your organisational and time management skills. It also includes refreshed and up-to-date case studies and extra examples for primary school teachers. Written in Sue Cowley's honest, accessible and down-to-earth style, How to Survive your First Year in Teaching is a must-have for all early career teachers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Very practical and well-written in an engaging style. Sue Cowley has a good track record on popular education texts and this is sure to be another winner. * David Waugh, Primary PGCE programme director, Durham University *
Straightforward, solid advice that's easy to absorb and can be put into practice from Day One... * Teach Secondary *
Sue Cowley takes the newly appointed teacher step by step through the first year, starting with things that nobody tells you. * TES New Teachers supplement *
The book works as one which you read from cover to cover or as one you can dip into as required... I particularly appreciated and enjoyed the section on ten tried-and-tested teaching tips... I would recommend this book highly. * Dr Liane Purnell, Newman University *
Super synopsis around planning, some clear, honest tips about staffing... overall a useful book to allow NQTs to develop their identity from a trainee to an NQT and into a qualified teacher. -- Nasreen Majid * Programme Director BA Ed Primary, University of Reading *
Sue seems quite pragmatic, acknowledging that a 'one size fits all' approach ignores the diverse ways that poor behaviour manifests itself, and offering a range of ideas for how to deal with such behaviour. * Tom Savager, UCAS Teacher Training *
