Thank you to all the teachers who attended the CPD last night and a huge thanks to Pathfinder Teaching School Alliance for putting on this session.
The CPD evening which was held at Archbishop Holgates School was a great success. It was hugely engaging and received positive feedback from all.
The twilight session was ‘Anxiety’ and was delivered by Gemma Fieldsend who works for the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust. The session included looking into what anxiety is and the different types of anxiety. They looked at how it affects people differently and how to spot the signs of pupils suffering with anxiety. Everyone who attended were made aware of when anxiety becomes a disorder and what the coping strategies/ techniques are. Our supply staff were shown excellent online resources to help pupils who are suffering.
We are very grateful to be working with Pathfinder Teaching School Alliance. 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.
We are already looking forward to the next CPD session tonight which is for primary and secondary which is on Behaviour for Learning. If you haven’t booked onto this or you’re wanting more information regarding the CPD we offer, make sure you get in touch with us.
