New Teacher Webinars

Every year, the NASUWT runs a programme of free professional development seminars for new teacher members.

The programme encompasses a series of seminars that take place during the summer before you take up your first teaching post through to two follow-up conferences towards the end of the first term and the end of your first year of teaching.

This year, we've moved online so now they're even easier to access - and they're still FREE. Our 2020 series of webinars are still specifically and exclusively designed for our new teacher members but they're taking place on Zoom.
