Equal Access to Promotion – 24-25 November 2017

Equal Access to Promotion is a development programme specifically designed for black teachers in their fifth to twelfth year of teaching who already have some leadership responsibilities. The NUT uses the term ‘Black’ in a political context to encompass all members who self-identify as Black or Asian and all other minority ethnic groups who do not identify themselves as White.

This programme aims to raise your influence as leaders in school in order to impact on student learning and wellbeing. As part of your learning you will have the opportunity to carry out specific, mutually agreed, school-based projects that produce evidence relating to leadership, management and professional development issues.

Date: Friday 14th – Saturday 25th November 2017

Introductory Certificate in Transactional Analysis – 30 November – 1 December 2017

This course has two parts and it is mandatory to attend both.

Part One: 30 November – 1 December (Thur-Friday)
Part Two: 1 March 2018 (Thur)

Transactional analysis (TA) is a way of making sense of the relational aspects of teaching and learning in both the classroom and staffroom contexts. Leading on from the behaviour-focused courses in the NUT programme, this certificated training will provide participants with:

  • psychological models for encouraging healthy emotional development
  • material for using TA directly with students and developing a whole school strategy
  • ideas for getting the best out of pupils, parents and colleagues
  • tools to look beyond behaviour management and into relationships and pedagogy
  • the internationally recognised Introductory Certificate in Transactional Analysis

The course is divided into two parts allowing participants to try techniques and ideas back in the classroom and then reflect on their practice.

Date: Thursday 30 November – Friday 1 December 2017
Venue: TBC – Residential
Fee: £75 for NUT members, £150 for non-members
