Within the education system of England, there is a serious issue of early career teachers leaving the profession, and many schools struggling to retain staff as they feel disillusioned by a career that is severely more demanding than expected. Without the right support, it is difficult for early career teachers to know where to turn. Although surrounded by a lot of people, teaching can sometimes feel a really lonely pursuit, but it doesn’t need to end in despair.
That’s the message that strongly shines through in Victoria Hewett’s new book ‘Making it as a teacher’ where she inspires early career teachers to explore a vast world of online opportunities to help, support and develop the teaching process. A valued contributor to UKEdChat (click to see resources and ideas), Victoria has shared some of her experiences, findings and ideas in a resourceful book that explores the issues and challenges teachers may face, including: Lesson planning, marking and feedback; behaviour and classroom management; work-life balance, and; progression, CPD and networking.
With examples of classroom pedagogical ideas, along with useful links for further exploration, this book can help the reader explore a rich online environment that supports individual teachers to be inspired by the opportunities available. Along with the real-life photographs scattered throughout the book, Victoria also points to research, online-resources and anecdotes sharing her experiences within the profession.
Although aimed at early career teachers, this book is filled with great ideas and inspiration that can support colleagues in most phases of education, including primary and secondary school educators.
