Going into the classroom marks an exciting time ahead, but you may also feel apprehension. You certainly won’t be alone in this. Knowing where to turn for help and advice before you start will enable you to thrive, not just survive.

Regularly updating knowledge and skills can help you remain competent, effective, and innovative in your role. When your practice has these qualities, you are more likely to feel inspired, inspire others and teach effectively, thus enabling your learners to achieve their best.

To help you prepare for your teaching career, the NEU will be running a range of webinars to give you the confidence and skills in classroom practice, as well as hearing from experienced and award-winning LGBT+ Teachers and organisations on the scope and pivotal role LGBT+ inclusion has in today’s modern schools and the role you as educators can play in challenging systematic racism.

All the webinars are free to NEU as is membership to the NEU for all trainees and students. You can join online here
