Next week we are starting up our free monthly Improve Your Teaching workshops. Our 11+ expert, Pia, will help tutors get to grips with the 11+ English exams; she will look at different styles of papers (such as the ISEB ones and specific school ones) and go through what’s involved with the exam to give tutors more confidence when working with 11+ students. Pia will then be leading an 11+ maths workshop mid-October, and from November onwards, we hope to run a series of workshops on special needs.
The aim of the Improve Your Teaching workshops is to further the skills and confidence of the tutors on our books. It’s a chance for tutors to get together and share their knowledge and experience – and as the workshops are held at our offices, they also give us the chance to see tutors and chat to them face to face. It’s all part of creating a strong tutor community where tutors feel they are part of a supported network.
If you haven’t been able to nab a space on next week’s workshop (and many of you haven’t), bear with us – we’ll let you know the date of the next one as soon as possible.
