Volunteers from the RDN Supplementary School have had the opportunity to attend training sessions this year, delivered by the NRCSE on effective teaching methods.

The course, which ran from 21st February – 28th March 2018, will result in participants receiving a Level 2 or Level 3 qualification.

Supplementary schools from Hammersmith and Ealing also attended, enabling the sharing of ideas and strategies for teaching. Learners progressed through the five parts of the teaching cycle: Planning, Teaching, Assessment, Feedback and Evaluation. Through this key skills were learnt such as: lesson planning, behaviour management, forms of assessment, and special educational needs and disability support (SEND). These skills were then applied on a weekly basis as learners were required to deliver and evaluate three lessons, using the content learnt in training sessions.

Volunteers from RDN will now have the opportunity to apply the skills they have learnt in future supplementary schools sessions to gain further experience in education.
