How have Covid-19 and the use of tech impacted safeguarding? (sponsored)

When much of the world locked down in the early part of this year, people everywhere looked for digital solutions to a lack of face-to-face interaction. Schools introduced virtual lessons, while students took to apps as a way to maintain connections with their peers. But at what cost? The rapid increase in technology use in education has led to extra complications when it comes to keeping both staff and students safe and ensuring the wellbeing of both isn’t impacted dramatically.

Not only are they an opportunity to really discover if a candidate lives up to the expectations set by their application, it’s also a chance for the candidate to assess their potential employer.

How can new teachers find the CPD they need? | Sponsored

As a new teacher finding the right CPD can feel a bit like searching for a needle in a haystack. There are many courses out there aimed at teachers- both online, in person. For free, and for a fee. Ones that will give you letters after your name, and ones that will just give you a certificate of attendance. But this year in particular will see a host of new teachers looking to fill gaps that school closures may have left in their classroom experience. So what CPD is worth pursuing? Tes recruitment editor, Grainne Hallahan, caught up with Sarah Barker of Orchard School in Bristol to talk about where and how a new teacher can begin their search. For more on this topic why not join our upcoming webinar with author and educator Jill Berry (https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/8215975703720860688?source=podcast). On Monday 21 September at 4pm (BST) Jill will be looking at how early-career teachers can make the most of the CPD on offer.
