    Hello, I am in my fifth year of teaching and to be honest the school I am in (my only one) is fairly poor when it comes to professional development. How would I go about preparing myself for a year leader / deputy head role? Are there any courses that people would recommend?
    Thanks

  3. Hi,
    I would say a school based module to help you gain credits would be a good option. Get name out there in your local authority by writing a newsletter for your local authority newsletter on an aspect of your teaching. You could also ask to lead embed a new project in school, like streaming phonics or more drama in literacy to imrpove chn's motivations. TeachersTV may give you some ideas.
    I would find out from your LEA what courses they can offer or twlights. I'm thinking of doing an MA.
    Good luck.
