NUT training days are some of the best training sessions you’ll attend. If you’re thinking of signing up for something, then just do it!
Before summer, I attended a training day on Pay Progression and its relation to Performance Management at Carmel school, Darlington. I quickly realised how little I knew about the issue.
The day was well organised with experts on hand to guide you through the training materials and answer any questions. Just as friendly and helpful were the other attendees to discuss ideas and case studies with, bounce ideas off and provide further insights.
Next day, I was able to feed back what I’d learnt to NUT members in school. The response was excellent. Members felt it had provided them with ammunition to protect and empower themselves. You could say that it provided a spring board for other things; a few people asked about getting together for a meeting in school about it.
Get involved, you never know where it might lead …
