Training methods available for a teacher

Extracts from this document...


Task 5 In order to become a qualified ICT teacher I will need to undergo a series of training in order to increase my knowledge and skills and to gain more experience. Having training would benefit me when applying for the role of an ICT teacher as employers would want someone with training. There are 2 types of training: on the job and off the job. On the job training is training that takes place in the workplace in my case on school premises whereas off the job training is training that takes place outside the work place such as courses. The advantages of using on the job training are that it is compared to off the job as you are training them yourself on your own premises. It also means that the employees get to work on in their own environment which makes it more useful to them. ...read more.


would work with me and they would pass onto their knowledge and experiences on to me. This would get me more familiar to teaching Job -shadowing is another training I can go through which is similar to mentoring but rather than another teacher working with me, I would observe them teaching and ask them any questions I may have. An example is ITT (Initial Teachers Training). This training is specific to me as a newly qualified teacher and would allow me to get familiar to a school environment as well as demonstrations on how to teach. I can also undergo job rotation. This is when I move between jobs rather than just sticking to one so I would carry out the role of a form tutor or a supply teacher.

An example of an external course I can go to is an ICT course which is available at many institutions. The benefit of me going to external courses is that I can gain more qualification and it will improve my skills and knowledge in the specific subject i.e. ICT. Placement is another off the job training. Placement is when I would go to another school and carry out the same roles as I would in my current school. This is similar to work experience but is directly suited to my job i.e. teaching. The benefit of me doing this is that it allows me to gain more teaching practice and techniques. LEA (Local Education Authority) meetings and events are available to me and is held for people to further develop their skills in areas they're weak at. Another training similar to LEA is CPD (Continued Professional Development. This course would help me to improve and broaden my knowledge in key areas (such as areas I am not quite so good at) and help to develop their skills. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
