I run active learning in maths CPD events for primary teachers and am looking for some advice please.
As the job market is so fierce at the moment, I was thinking about running some courses specifically for unemployed teachers to help boost your skills and make your CV start out. The courses are very practical courses which will give you a range of ready to use ideas and activities and an online discussion board so you can ask questions and share experiences after the events. Would be based around the key issues of the moment - e.g. management of active learning, mental maths strategies, assessment techniques and maths across the curriculum.
Do you think this is something worth pursuing? If so, which of the following formats would your prefer - twilights, Saturday courses, or whole day courses during the summer holidays?
Any advice would be appreciated :)
This sounds like an excellent idea. I wish more people thought of the supply teachers need to boost their cvs.
Personally I wouldn't mind twilight, Saturdays or whole days in the summer but I think possibly offering a few different selections might be good.
I have decided to go ahead and run a few day courses over the summer holidays, thanks for the encouragement! Details can be found at www.activelearninginmaths.co.uk then click on summer events banner for more information.
Thanks again :)
