Those Who Can is a podcast designed to help teachers reflect on their practice. Each week Will and Paul will talk through various aspects of teaching, aiming to share our thoughts about what has shaped our experience, as well as talk through the advice we might offer to teachers at a variety of stages in their career.
By talking through aspects of teaching that we find difficult or have wanted more advice on, we hope to encourage more teachers to reflect on how they go about their day-to-day work at the chalk face.

    S.4 Ep 3 - Making the most of the NQT year

    S.4 Ep 3 - Making the most of the NQT year

    We're joined by Chloe Bateman this week, a recent NQT who shares her experiences and wisdom with us. Paul does his best to recall his NQT year, while Will does his best to recall being a teacher. 

    Featuring an array of tips that we hope are useful for any Newly Qualified Teachers, mentors and leaders, we also hope this prompts a few trips down memory lane to where it all began for all who listen!

    S4. Ep 2 - Middle and Senior Leadership

    S4. Ep 2 - Middle and Senior Leadership

    This week we discuss the relationship between middle and senior leaders: when it goes well, where potential issues arise and how to get the most out of talented HoDs/manage upwards when necessary. 

    We also discuss the nature of results and the examination system, which was a lot more pressing at the time of recording but is hopefully still of interest!

    S4. Ep 1 - Where have we been?

    S4. Ep 1 - Where have we been?

    With the gaps between seasons becoming longer and slightly more erratic, our return sees a reflection on the past year. We consider the value of educational conferences in the context of Will's growing stardom, talk about Ed Tech and blogs vs journals, while Paul gets slightly grumpy about Twitter. 


    Most importantly - we're back!

    S.3 Ep 4 - What doesn't work?

    S.3 Ep 4 - What doesn't work?

    We talk this week about the list put forward by Ben Newmark last term, outlining all of the activities and approaches he felt hadn't worked in the classroom. The list drew upon his extensive experience and was extremely well-received, so we felt it would be a great starting point for discussion and reflection from our own time at the chalkface.

    S3. Ep 3 - Who Teaches the Teachers?

    S3. Ep 3 - Who Teaches the Teachers?

    Given Will's role and the on-going challenges facing PGCE courses across the country, we thought it worth spending a little bit of time unpacking exactly what it is that Will does for a living. 

    Featuring an insight into teacher training at university, some thoughts around the strengths and drawbacks of the PGCE and its alternatives, as well as a full blown introspective meltdown on Will's part, we hope you enjoy this week's episode on a slightly different area of teaching.

    S3. Ep 2 - Extra-Curricular - Extra Effort?

    S3. Ep 2 - Extra-Curricular - Extra Effort?

    The second episode of this season sees us debating the worth of extra-curricular activities. Often a large part of school life, do they distract too much from the core work of teachers, and is enough done in recognition of the efforts that are put in?

    This podcast marks perhaps the first time we disagree on an issue, as well as straying in to other areas of school life, for instance the role of the form tutor and how to best support students outside the classroom.
