Vicki also took the time to write to us, and had this to say:

Sharon it is absolutely brilliant! You should be very proud. The course is going to help so many people who come into supply not knowing what to do or expect.  It covers everything, their very own ‘How To’ book for Supply Teachers. I absolutely love it and know they will too.

The 6 modules are as follows:
1. Presenting Yourself as a Professional
2. Building Self-Confidence
3. Improvisation Skills
4. Behaviour Management
5. Building Long-Term Professional Relationships
6. Time for Reflection

Each module will take between 3-5 hours to complete.

CPD for Supply Teachers, a self-study course, is priced at £20.00. The course will be delivered as a Word document (.docx), and a self-evaluation certificate for your CPD file will be sent in a separate email.

 

Review of ‘CPD for Supply Teachers’ by TheSupplyTeacher.com by Susanna Thicks

"I decided to undertake this course as I was preparing to get back into teaching this new school year. I have been out of the classroom for over two years, having had my confidence knocked, and so I was feeling rather anxious about returning. I happened to see this course advertised on Twitter, and, at a very reasonable price, decided to give it a go. I can honestly say, I am so glad that I did!

I was informed by Sharon that this would be the perfect study course to undertake prior to getting back into teaching and my first experience of supply. I was worried that this was something that I would only be able to complete whilst actually doing supply work, but this wasn’t the case and I was able to work my way through it over the summer, working at my own pace, ready for the new school year. The payment was quick and easy (via Paypal) and was simple to download. I then started work!  

CPD for Supply TeachersOn first glance at the modules, I could see that the content was going to be just what I needed. I was particularly looking forward to the ‘Building Self-Confidence’ module, as this was a big concern of mine. I felt as though all the modules were very appropriate and targeted at the issues and concerns that most supply teachers are worried about or need advice on. Once started, I found the modules really easy (and sort of addictive!) to work through. The modules were clearly set out, with the aims and objectives listed at the beginning and a summary at the end. The activities were well suited and easy to understand and I was really impressed with the further reading that was suggested at the end of each module. All the activities were varied, and I found that by working through each one, I was realising and thinking about things that I hadn’t even considered. I found the activities made me think, not just about myself as a teacher, but also myself as an individual. There were lots of hints and tips and each module was very easy to read and work through. I particularly liked the end of module essays, as I felt they brought each module all together and really made me think and realize what I had learnt during the course of the module. Some of the activities were a little challenging, but in a good way. I found some difficult to get into and had a case of the writer’s block, but once I started, I found that I had a lot to say!   

I was impressed as to how quickly Sharon was to reply. She was so supportive all the way through, from my initial enquiries to the feedback I received. I feel like this course has opened up a network of fellow teachers and resources that I can go to when I need some support, advice and inspiration.

The whole course has encouraged me to get back into ‘teacher mode’. I have never done supply before and now I feel I know the kind of skills I am going to use and improve before starting. I shall be showing the agencies my certificate. I cannot recommend this course highly enough, especially if you are feeling anxious about undertaking supply work. Thanks to Sharon and this course, I now feel so much confident and ready to take on the challenge of supply teaching. Bring it on!"

CPD for Supply Teachers - Review

Top Class Education - CPD for Supply TeachersKate Wright, Director & Education Consultant at Top Class Education, kindly sent us her review of CPD for Supply Teachers:

"Having reviewed the CPD course literature from ‘The Supply Teacher’ I am delighted to write a prognosis of my findings.

It is extremely clear from the start that this literature is well written and set out and guides new supply teachers in a direction which will allow their confidence to grow throughout their journey into the supply world.  In my 12 years’ experience, I have seen supply teachers coming into the world of supply and finding it very different and simply not preparing themselves enough and without guidance like Sharon and her team have put together, some sadly, walk away from supply.  Other than guidance from an agency, there has never been any real information to prepare anyone joining the world of supply in our schools.  Therefore I am extremely proud to be asked to view this literature.  

Once I started reading through these well-presented bite size pieces of self-study material, I found myself engrossed and was unable to put this down.  I have to say this is possibly the most informative, and only study material any supply teacher will ever need, it offers guidance and strategic advice that not only would benefit the supply teacher, whilst building their confidence in the classroom as a supply teacher but will also be extremely beneficial for anyone else in the world of education.  We all know being a supply teacher in school is not the easiest, however this CPD self-study will give results whilst building on the confidence to really believe in yourself.  I would highly recommend this CPD self-study course to supply teachers and I would also recommend this information be kept in all staff rooms in schools for any supply teachers to view.

Well done to ‘The Supply Teacher’ for such a fabulous tool that I will be recommending to all of my present and new supply teachers coming on board."

CPD for Supply Teachers - Product Review

CPD for Supply Teachers - A ReviewCPD for Supply Teachers drew me in immediately and kept me engaged until I'd finished all of the six modules.
 
The information is clear, straightforward and honest, it promises nothing more than the truth that Supply Teaching and becoming even better at it requires hard work and commitment on the part of the individual.
 
The activities, and particularly the end of module essays really encouraged me to reflect on what I'd done in the past and what I could do now, and into the future, to develop both as a teacher and as a person.
 
I really liked the emphasis on the fact that supply teachers are teachers first; that "supply" is the way chosen to do that teaching shouldn't make any difference to the professional outlook of the individual.
 
This is an excellent course for anyone working with children not just supply teachers and the authors should be commended for approaching the subject in a way that invites participants to engage right from the get go and well beyond the end of Module 6.
