This workshop is designed to support NQTs to plan in a focused, effective and efficient manner. Requirements regarding planning, preparation and recording of progress are discussed and clarified. This workshop uses the guidelines for long-term planning and short- term planning and provides examples of planning templates which can be used to support NQTs’ work over the year. Opportunities to discuss strategies and share ideas will be a central element of this workshop.

This induction workshop aims to provide NQTs with an opportunity to explore and consider classroom practices which create safe and predictable learning environments for their pupils to support pupils’ academic, social and emotional development. The following areas will be addressed: positive relationships, the social environment of the classroom, the learning environment, classroom organisation, teacher attitudes and behaviour, a systematic response to responding to behaviour, and social and emotional teaching strategies.

The focus of this workshop is the practical implementation of the principles of good mathematics teaching in everyday classroom practice. Emphasis is placed on the development of number sense, mathematical language, problem-solving skills, and mental and oral maths activities in the classroom. ** LITERACY AND NUMERACY FOR LEARNING AND LIFE: The National Strategy to Improve Literacy and Numeracy among Children and Young People 2011‐2020 (DES:2011) is a key reference document for this workshop.

Dearadh an cheardlann seo chun tacú le Múinteoirí Nuacháilithe agus iad ag i mbun pleanála agus ag múineadh na Gaeilge i mbunscoil. Tá béim ar príomhtheachtaireachtaí Churaclam Teanga na Bunscoile ó thús deireadh na ceardlainne seo, agus tá straitéisí éifeachtacha pleanála, teagaisc agus measúnaithe tugtha iontu. In éineacht leis sin, cuirfear béim ar na Modhanna Oideolaíochta, ar an gCur Chuige Cumarsáideach agus ar a thábhachtaí atá sé Gaeilge neamhfhoirmiúil a úsáid sa seomra ranga agus ar fud na scoile.

This online interactive workshop is designed to support NQTs working in a multi-grade setting and four main areas are addressed: preparation for teaching and learning; differentiation; classroom management and organisation; teaching methodologies and approaches. 

NQTs are afforded opportunities to engage in a variety of methodologies throughout the workshop. 

This workshop will support NQTs to plan and prepare for pupils with special educational needs. A practical, activity-based approach is used to consider the Individualised Education Planning process informed by the Continuum of Support. The development of support plans, target setting and the implementation of interventions will be explored.
