I would like to push back on the student-centric approach. I am currently helping a STEM class of about 20 early teens: to be a guide on the side takes a lot of staff (3 possibly going to 4). It actually suits my style as I have come from Industry to Teaching, first as a Uni lecturer (no training) then a long spell in an FE college (some quaint CPD) and recently science clubs in Primary (self book taught).

Looking at your local teaching training provision I am impressed by the numbered list of a third of the course: get self sorted then student focus, aided by practice. (A casual glance at my local uni provider shows no such detail and more about course/school mechanics.) I am influenced by the latest excellent google talk below: I feel you have to feel good about yourself before worrying about others. Maybe not fashionable but ….

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
