The Training Ground
For trainees and NQTs
We remember how it feels to be the new teacher on the block – and so we’ve designed a place for English trainees and NQTs to call their own.
Essentials for perfect planning – what makes the perfect lesson and how should it be assessed? Plus ideas for starters, mains and puddings ... no, sorry, plenaries
Resources – our bank of trainee and NQT-friendly teaching materials
School placements – who does what for you in school to help you become the best teacher you can be
Passing the course – advice on gathering evidence and on working at Master's level
Plus jargon-busting glossaries, a comprehensive reading list, and more!
The Language Sputnik
Sputnik is having a well deserved rest but you'll find most of the content – and more – on our Language pages. Come and have a look!
The Word Kitchen
Novel approaches for English and ICT
The Word Kitchen has gone into retirement. But fear not, we have a new ICT in English area where you can find all of Chris Warren's resources and more.
See you there!
