Hi I've been working voluntarily in Primary and Secondary schools for the last four months now, and am hoping to start my GTP to teach English in September. I have about 2 months left of my voluntary experience and want to ask whether anyone, particularly experienced English teachers, and those recently qualified, has any advice for me. I'm currently in the school where (hopefully) I will complete my GTP, so you may wish to bear that in mind. The English Dep. teachers there are very friendly, so I've made myself a timetable so I'm spending time with every yeargroup (except KS5) and almost every dep. teacher, trying to support different pupils in each lesson, making sure not to tread on the teacher's (or anyone else's) toes! What should I be asking about/looking at/doing? I'm trying to find out about how the National Curric. translates into lessons, about behaviour management, and about teacher techniques and practices. Anything else? Any advice is much appreciated - thanks!
