    I've really enjoyed day-to-day supply over most of the past 15years but now I'm considering part-time teaching that will involve 'standard' planning, recording and assessment. The trouble is that I have done very little. I have been a supply mainly in KS2 with lots of KS1 and know that there are many features of class teaching that I am unaware of - known unknowns and unknown unknowns! If you were in my position, how would you get the necessary skills and knowledge? For example , does the weekly planning come from the mid-term plans , and how often is the mid-term planning updated? (Get into Teaching has nothing for primary teachers.)
    I'm over 50 - maybe I've left it too late?

    If there were short update courses for old teachers like me , I'm sure many would sign up..

    Well, you could try your local FE college, as they may do one.

    And you could also try talking to someone at a school that you visit regularly.

    If you are going back as PT, you will be sharing the planning with a colleague who would be a support.

    Best wishes
