The training I received from CTG has helped me no end in the first term of my NQT year. This is due to a combination of lectures and workshops demonstrating teaching and learning and being able to take the new knowledge into a school setting and experiment to see which strategies are effective and work best for me. The use of reflective practice throughout the course allows you to adapt and change constantly, which is what I have needed to do throughout my first term of my NQT year. I feel that the use of reflection will help me to continuously develop as a teacher. Without CTG I would not have started this way of thinking.
