Code: OTSA/18/44 NQT Induction Tutor (Mentor) Training


Mentoring newly qualified teachers can be a rewarding but demanding role. This training will firstly outline how to provide an effective personalised induction programme for your NQT and will then consider the interpersonal skills required for mentoring, making effective use of teaching observations and how to give effective feedback. Consideration will be given to constructive target setting and how to handle the ‘tricky conversations’ that Induction Tutors sometimes face.

Code: OTSA/18/48 OTSA NQT Peer Observation Programme - South Oxfordshire

Teaching is complex and the variations in how we do it are endless and one of the best and most easily accessible ways to witness other approaches to teaching comes from our colleagues.

This programme is designed to put you in touch with other NQTs and to facilitate peer observation visits in each other’s schools. You will have the opportunity to start a professional dialogue with other NQTs, gain fresh perspectives, articulate your practice and to improve the quality of your own teaching.

Code: OTSA/18/68 Developing use of the Bar Model

In 2013, the NCETM reported: ‘When solving word problems, it is often not the calculation that children can’t do – rather they are not sure which calculation they need to do.’ Since then, end of key-stage test questions have become increasingly demanding in the level of interpretation required to fully access their meaning, whilst Cuisenaire rods and drawn bar models have helped teachers in many schools support children with representing their mathematical thinking.

By joining this training event, participants will develop:

  • Understanding about the potential of the bar model representation as a strategy to help children strengthen their ability to visualise, develop conceptual understanding and solve problems. 
  • Knowledge of progression in use of the bar model linked with the skill of using secure pedagogies, for example, use of practical equipment.


Updated content from the summer of 2018 will be used, which will mean the session is suitable for participants:

  • Who are enthusiastic about understanding key principles related to the bar model, which can be shared to inform consistent practice across their school.
  • Who will benefit from training, so that they can develop consistency in its use that is in-line with other colleagues in school.
