Expert Advice 1



Dr Kevan Bleach has co-authored books for NQTs and gives seminars and lectures on good practice. In this programme he works with two NQTs, offering advice on lesson planning and time management.

Dr Bleach dissects how NQT Clare Hewitt tackles the essential components of a good lesson plan. With Stuart Tatterton, Dr Bleach focuses on the tricky area of time management and offers some practical advice for any NQT who is struggling to manage their workload.

Providing an expert view, Dr Bleach gives a detailed analysis of the techniques Clare and Stuart are using as well as offering broader advice for all NQTs in their first year of teaching.

Dr Kevan Bleach highlights:

  • Clare's use of a variety of approaches based on the fact that children have different styles of learning and different needs
  • Her use of the primary school approach to active learning at secondary level
  • The degree of detail that Clare puts into planning the lesson for a special occasion
  • Her jargon-free use of learning objectives
  • Her encouragement for less forthcoming children to get involved in the lesson
  • The need for Stuart to set a wider variety of types of homework assignments
