What additional teaching qualifications have you done?
16

Jet888 · 19/08/2021 17:37

Hi all
Beyond your pgce/Scitt (or gtp in my day!) what additional teaching qualifications have you done that you feel actually made a difference to your career, whether by advancing it or changing its direction? Aside from the npqh and similar as I'm not interested in deputy or headship in particular.
Many thanks in advance

I have a masters in applied professional studies in education. It was really practical and my dissertation was a project I did in school which has had some influence on how we develop staff in my school

I've done nothing in 39 years. I'm not interested in promotion and I've seen the day when I was younger when I might have done something extra to "look good" but that ship has sailed.

Nowadays I go to school, do my day's work and go home. Nothing more.

MEd in the area of SEND that I teach and trained to be a Team Teach tutor. Those are the only big things really. Lots of smaller CPD.

I'm looking at the new NPQs

I did the NPQML which was very much linked to my in school practice. It developed my leadership skills and I think definitely helped when I went for the next promotion.

I am starting my MA in Education leadership in September (part time,online as I work full time) which again, should link nicely to the role I have in school and hopefully support me in going for promotions in the future.

Stuff through the maths hub / ncetm has been really interesting for me personally and taken my career in a different direction temporarily - it was a good sideways move while I had young dc.

Marking for the exam board ( ha ha obviously not since 2019)
Really interesting, great CPD and you get paid. Have worked up to become a senior examiner on 2 papers in my subject and I really enjoy it, my school see it as a positive and I have had more offers from the exam board if I wanted to move totally sideways into examining.

NASENCO and MED. I definitely think I'm a better practitioner because of it!

MA in Education and then a post grad diploma in psychology as I was intending to retrain as an Ed Psych. However I had DC1 so that ship sailed without me as a three year PhD would not fit with family life.... Also a qualification in teaching adults which I hope improved my ability to lead INSET sessions.

I did NPQML a few years ago and it was quite good , definitely helped me get a promotion by giving me examples to talk about and the language they wanted to hear in interviews. I was already doing the tasks so it wasn't that much extra in terms of work. I've since stepped right back to classroom teacher but am meant to be doing the SSAT lead practitioner and I'm finding it much more difficult to cover the requirements through my everyday role- thank goodness we've been given another year to submit it!

I did my PGCE in 2001. Since then I have done:

  • MEd
  • NASENCo
  • MA in Special and Inclusive Education
  • Extended TEFL including teaching 1:1 and online, teaching children and business teaching
  • CCET
  • AAC (combines with CCET to make CPT3A)

    I was also the webinar/online CPD queen in lockdown!

    Next step (Sept 2022) is EdD.

    I also tutor the NASENCo and international SENCo courses and I'm looking at being a local tutor for the NPQSL.

Qualified in 2000. Did my dyslexia teacher's qualification (level 5) in 2010 and the assessor's qualification in 2011. This led to a role focused on interventions rather than whole class teaching. I had a break with DC so it took a while, but I did the NASENCO qualification during lockdown and am starting my first SENCO post next week. Finally feels like I've got to where I want to be! Grin

It wasn't something I had a passion for either, @Jet888 - now I live and breathe it!

That is interesting to hear! I have a son who may end up needing an ehcp for a potential genetic disorder. If so, I wonder whether that will build my interest in sen too!
