Returning to teaching after a 7 year break

So I'm ready to go back (Y5/6) but aware my skills are way out of date!

What's the best route to take to build confidence before throwing myself back into the lion's den grin. Volunteering? Refresher course?

Any ideas/experiences to share?

TIA smile

I heard somewhere that there aren't any refresher courses anymore, but your area might be different. I would suggest starting off with some volunteering and then dipping your toe in the supply pool - loads of work for supply teachers round here. Would help you work out where you want a permanent job too.
