History, Managing beginning teachers

I am the Head of History at Ernest Bevin College in Tooting, London. I have specialist outstanding knowledge of teaching and learning in History. I have also undertaken valuable research into the management and utility of beginning teachers in my own institution and been involved in creating policies relating to the management of beginning teachers in my school.

What support can I bring?

As an SLE, I hope to support schools in developing their ability to support individual teachers, beginning teachers and Heads of Departments in school improvement. In my opinion, this can be achieved primarily through focusing on teaching and learning and developing positive working relationships.
