The advantages of being an Early Career Teacher
Yorkshire Education has already highlighted what the Early Career Teacher is, but do you know what the advantages are they bring to the school?
We regularly receive requests from schools who are looking for teachers that have recently received their QTS qualification which is why we are sharing the benefits that an Early Career Teacher has to offer.
Early Career Teachers know the current teaching methods
During their studies, Early Career Teachers have spent lots of time researching education and combined this with practical classroom experience through their work placements. This means they have new techniques they can bring to benefit the school as they share them with other staff.
They may have a range of experiences from other industries as many could be changing careers coming into teaching and can use a variety of practical work examples to make their lessons more engaging.
Early Career Teachers are committed
This commitment encourages Early Career Teachers to focus on the tasks set by their mentor. They are keen to achieve and as a result, they will build relationships with other members of staff to help them handle additional responsibility they have been given. For example, how to manage running an extra-curricular activity alongside their teaching responsibilities.
Early Career Teachers bring a fresh perspective
Early Career Teachers bring with them fresh perspectives and ways of working. They can apply methods they have seen work elsewhere and will be willing to adapt and fit in as they don’t bring negative preconceptions or bad habits. They offer a creative approach and can present a new viewpoint on the learning experience. Students need to be inspired to stay motivated to learn. By bringing new ideas into schools, this can be a great way Early Career Teachers achieve this.
Early Career Teachers are comfortable with new technology
Smartboards are standard in classrooms and many schools are introducing iPads to aid learning. Teachers need to have a range of learning solutions for the pupils they teach so new teachers will be familiar with the popular ways to integrate technology and online learning to engage with their class.
Early Career Teachers can fit in quickly to a school culture
Early Career Teachers can be trained to fit in with a school’s culture. They are given a strong support system which offers an opportunity to grow in the right way to create a varied and engaging learning experience for pupils.
