 The role of the Supporter has been cited as being absolutely critical in the GTCS Teacher Induction Scheme

The purpose of this workshop is to provide an update on the support that schools should be providing for Probationers joining their school from August 2017.  It will provide suitable initial training for teachers about to take on the role of Supporter, and  provide a refresher for those who have some supporter experience. 

The day will be led by Elaine Napier, Senior Education Officer (Early Phase and Professional Learning), GTCS,  and will take a different format from previous years.  The requirements for both Probationer and Supporter will be covered,  alongside training on the online profile.  In addition, Elaine will explore with colleagues how how Probationers can be supported in three areas:  

  • Enquiry;  
  • Coaching; and 
  • The Professional Values  

NB This event will also be suitable for colleagues supporting those who are on the Provisional (Conditional) route. 

Please register as soon as possible and by Friday 26 May at the latest.
