Code: 19NQT/037P Tackling mental health and wellbeing in schools as an NQT

Statistically three pupils in every classroom could have diagnosable mental ill health.

It is vital NQTs feel equipped to fulfil their role in supporting these pupils.

This involves attention promoting and supporting positive wellbeing in classroom processes and activities. Teachers need to make the necessary adjustments to support mental health needs.

This course will also introduce mindfulness as a coping, self-soothing mechanism and as an approach to supporting mental wellbeing.

Code: ENG/19/30/P Visualise this! Developing visualisation as a key skill for improving reading comprehension

Teaching pupils to visualise as they read aids their ability to recall key information and ideas from texts in greater detail.

Very few people suffer from aphantasia, a condition in which a person is unable to visualise mental images. Most pupils in our schools are able to see key mental images in their heads.

Through observing drawings and asking key questions we can begin to understand how the process information and make sense of text.

The course will take delegates through how to assess pupils' visualisation skills, teach key skills and support pupils to independently visualise, in order to better comprehend what has been read. This course is suitable for teachers of Key Stage 1 and Lower Key Stage 2 classes, as well as subject leaders.
