Working life as a teacher can be very solitary. This leads to tunnel vision, or a one track mind. We get comfortable and tend to oppose changes that would shift us. It’s easy to lose the perspective that other schools and institutions can give.
In my role as Professional Tutor at Priory School in Portsmouth, my plan is to use a whole Inset day in June to allow every teacher to visit another school or institution. The aim is to go out, visit and share. Think of it as work experience for teachers.
In order to pull this off I’ll need some help. So, if you could accommodate a teacher or two at your school for the day (and I’m not limiting here – we are an 11-16 Secondary, but I’m more than happy to receive offers from all phases) it would be great to hear from you. You may even be an educational business and fancy offering a place. Your location should be in and around Portsmouth, although all offers taken!
