Mass of beginning teachers’ questions answered at Federation conference
New Federation members — keen to have all their questions about the profession answered — paid close attention at the Beginning Teachers Conference held in Bundanoon at the weekend.
Topics covered during the two-day conference included classroom management, planning and programming, accreditation, conditions and entitlements, and gaining work in NSW public schools.
In a session titled “What I didn’t know when I started teaching”, two teachers shared their professional insights.
Conference participants also enjoyed opportunities to network with fellow new teachers at morning tea, lunches and a dinner and trivia night.
Recent teacher graduate Al Marshall reported to Twitter: “Lots to think about; Accreditation, Programming, Classroom Management, Aboriginal Education and funding….”
