Hi, new member here. This new year I want to ‘give something back’ wherever I can and would like to assist student teachers if possible. For the past 20 odd years I have worked in the Leeds/Wakefield area in secondary schools organizing and running Isolation Units and working as a Behaviour Officer within the Pastoral Department. I have worked with very talented young people but most of the time I have worked with the more challenging students within schools. Often I have met student teachers who have very little knowledge of how a behaviour system is organized and how a withdrawal unit is run, which of course is there to assist all staff and particularly student teachers. I’d like to offer my insight into what I do on a daily basis, why I do it, and some of the varied experiences I have encountered. I’d like to visit local universities and provide workshops, or as a guest speaker and provide an insight about behaviour in secondary schools to student teachers ideally before their school placements begin. I’m asking fellow members for comments regarding my plans - do you think it would be worthwhile and/or useful? I’d particularly welcome thoughts from any student teachers. Thanks.
