CPD with Pathfinder TSA
Yorkshire Education are very grateful to be working with Pathfinder Teaching School Alliance at Archbishop Holgate’s School to provide our supply staff with relevant and bespoke CPD.
This is a fantastic opportunity for our supply teachers to receive CPD that otherwise would not be available to them. We believe our teachers deserve the training that teachers employed permanently would benefit from.
Please see below the sessions that have already taken part.
Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2 Grammar
Highlighted key changes within the national curriculum regarding Grammar across y1-y6
Demonstrated excellent example material and resources that could be used on supply
Key topics that pupils consistently struggle with such as semi-colons, subordinate clauses & the subjunctive.
Behaviour for Learning
Why young people misbehave
Laying the foundations for good behaviour
How to make expectations, consistency & sanctions clear
How to work effectively with support staff
The Teaching for Mastery approach used in east & south-east Asian countries
Exploring and practicing key elements
Exploring some of the resources available for Teaching for Mastery
Gained a deeper understanding of Mastery: Factual, Procedural and Conceptual.
Looked at Meares-Irlen Syndrome (Visual Stress)
What is dyslexia?
How dyslexia children see works on paper and how they struggle with typical things they are required to do in their daily school lives
Looked at different resources you could use to help aid dyslexic children including coloured overlays
The gifts dyslexic children have that are different to non-dyslexic children
How you can screen children for dyslexia and common traits to look out for that may indicate dyslexia.
We have had some fantastic feedback from the CPD sessions which prove very popular:
“I thought the presentation was excellent, it was informative and engaging with brilliant resources.”
“Excellent simple solutions & practical examples!”
“Lots of information verballing but also in print which is very useful. Interesting presentation which I enjoyed, Thank you!”
“There was lots of information given and I learnt a lot. The tips on how to apply different techniques in the classroom were great. I will certainly do some more sessions after this.”
We are already looking forward to the next CPD sessions which will be held in May:
Secondary- Talk Less Teaching
Primary- KS1 & KS2 Writing
