During Week 3 we explore some of the most challenging aspects of being a new teacher. Despite all the hard work during training and in preparations for your first teaching post, it will still be a challenging time. At times, some new teachers may feel overwhelmed and unable to cope with the demands of the profession. We do not want that to happen to you.

Week 3 explores some of the challenges new teachers may face. We explore the concept of resilience, the professional development opportunities and the people and organsiations who are able to help you along the way.

We explore target setting and looking forward to your longer term teaching career goals.

Finally we hear from some new teachers describing their biggest successes of the year.
