"Future Teachers" workshop for sixth form
It was fabulous to have so many Yr 12 and Yr 13 students from Ferrers Rushden and Huxlow attend our TENC training workshop, held on the morning of Weds 5th December at The Ferrers School. The workshop was designed to acknowledge the huge contribution our sixth form students can make to the lives of lower school students when they help out in lessons,provide 1-1 support, listen to pupils read or act as sports leaders. The workshop explored how they can get the most out of the experience, the skills required, but also looked at the all important issue of safeguarding.
It was an action packed session, designed to help all those volunteering with younger students but also looking at how the sixth formers can build up their evidence based portfolios should they wish to enter the teaching profession in a few years time. It was so rewarding to have such a large number attending because they want to put something back into their school community.
