Next steps


We’ve come to the end of the course – thank you for joining us and we really hope you’ve enjoyed it. Before we suggest some ways for you to continue your learning, we will leave you with some final tips from Sarah, Bryn and Helen:

“Go for it and get as involved as much as possible in your school, it is such a positive and inspiring place to work in.” – Sarah Nimmey
“Make sure you are passionate about [teaching] as it is challenging, fast paced and sometimes very hard, but as long as you put in the effort and are willing to learn from colleagues and – most importantly – the children then you will be great. Also, enjoy it as most people don’t get the chance to appreciate what a really good school can do for children.” – Bryn Watkinson
“Ask questions if you do not understand something.” – Helen Brewis
