Asked to teach a non specialist subject, help

Discussion in 'Workplace dilemmas' started by polkaudio, Sep 10, 2011.

  1. Thanks for that. Sorry, the subject is actually Foundation Learning - Life skills. There's a mountain of paperwork for it and 15 kids in there.
    On top of this I also have my usual GCSE French class with 30.
    Thanks for replying though. I can't find anything to help me as this course was introduced last year.

    Are any other schools in your area doing it? You could get together with someone else, share the work, share ideas etc. Does your LEA have someone who could offer advice? I suspect networking with other people is the best bet and school should facilitate it in terms of time if they have landed you with it .
  3. I really don't know. I Have so little time. Am part-time there - 4 days a week. Went part-time 2 years ago after having twins! LOL. It seems I have more work than my full-time colleagues.
  4. I taught Functional Skills Maths and English as part of my PGCE. I used the webistes Skillsworkshop and BBC Skillswiese as they contained lots of really useful resources.
