Teaching – not what it use to be?


For some teachers that have been in education for fifteen plus years it can be quite alarming at how rapidly teaching and education is changing. For example the national curriculum was only brought in after the 1988 education reform act, so there are people still teaching who remember this in the early days and who found it a massive switch in the way lessons were taught. Fast forward twenty-six years on and you have Ofsted inspections, detailed planning for each lesson that must cover certain topics, exams at the end of each school year and ITC lessons.

So how are the older generations of teachers to keep up with the newly qualified teachers? Well firstly it’s always advised that throughout a career in education it’s important to go on courses to keep up to date with the latest techniques and teaching styles that are available. These courses can be interesting and a very valuable tool when it comes to lesson planning and coming up with fresh ideas.

It’s also important to remember that in education provided you are flexible and willing to learn new skills experience is extremely valuable and should be recognised as a great asset to have within a school.
