Everything you always wanted to know about starting your teaching career but never dared to ask! The book will take the NQT through a journey which starts with interviews, leads them through the first visit before taking up the job and then into the first hectic weeks and months. Light in touch but rich in content, it can be read around the pool during the holidays before your first term or kept at your bedside or in your desk draw for an emergency flick through once teaching gets underway! It expands on the stuff that teacher training touches on, but importantly provides a refreshing look at the nitty-gritty stuff that most training doesn't! Includes: getting a job, dealing with workload, discipline, preparing eye-catching lessons, dealing with parents, pastoral care, being a form tutor, dealing with colleagues, dealing with boys, getting involved in school life, taking trips, marking, assemblies, career development and much more. A brilliant book for NQTs. An inspiring, engaging and informative new series that shows you how to transform your practice and become - quite simply - brilliant.The series is edited by Andy Cope, founder of the Art of Brilliance, and underlain by his research into the positive psychology and the science of happiness. Andy says of his work, 'The focus is on translating some of the highbrow academia into clear, simple messages that everyone can take on board.' With wonderful illustrations by Amy Bradley. The first thing you must know about Amy is that drawing really is her favourite thing; she's been doing it for as long as she can remember! She is now illustrating these artfully brilliant books.
