Acing Your NQT Year


Acing Your NQT Year - A Practical Guide and Resources for Primary Teachers is a comprehensive guidebook for newly qualifed teachers or teachers looking for new ideas in the classroom. 

It covers all aspects of teaching, including Droichead, planning, assessment, differentiation, behaviour management, parent-teacher meetings, school tours, working with children with additional needs and much, much more! 

Part two of the book contains lesson notes, plans, resources, and templates to actively support teachers in the classroom. All resources can be shared with students from the 4schools online resource library or teachers may wish to photocopy templates. 

The author, Múinteoir Valerie, engages with and supports thousands of teachers on her social media accounts and through her website, which gives her a unique insight into the challenges teachers face in today’s classrooms. She decided to compile this book to equip new teachers with the knowledge and confidence to navigate the challenging world of teaching.
