Teachers for Tomorrow
In 2011-12 the CLF started a new programme for post 16 students who are interested in a career in teaching. The cohort is made up of 17 students who applied to join the course and they are taught for 2 hours a week alongside their A Level studies. The course includes the following experiences:
- Observation of lessons across the federation
- Planning and Delivering an Outstanding lesson
- Teaching reading in Early Years
- Designing resources for a Year 8 Humanities lesson and then using them to teach a small group of students
- Presentational Skills
- Using creative play as a stimulus for language development in Year 1 and 2
- Coaching and Mentoring a younger student
- One to One with a PGCE student to understand the routes from post 16 to a career in teaching
- Final Assessment to design and deliver a lesson for 20 minutes to a Year 7 class
If schools and colleagues working within them would like to find out more about the programme and have access to the curriculum and its resources, please contact Sam Brooks, PA to the Executive Principal at CLF firstname.lastname@example.org. The programme will be available for purchase in September 2012 for a fee of £450 + VAT
Kayleigh talks about her experience on the CLF Teachers for Tomorrow programme.
One of our current cohort of teachers for tomorrow was involved in delivering a showcase session at The Schools Network national conference in 2011. The theme of the conference was “Every child has talent.” You can view the clip below.
