To start with the drawbacks, there is not enough information for NQTs, the book is mostly for aspiring teachers and trainee teachers – this is why it loses a star for me. However, despite this the information that is in here for NQTs is very good (and genuinely useful advice that every teacher needs to know e.g the social aspects for one) but proportionately doesn’t represent justification for being in the title of the book.
Now the good points: It is basically the perfect introduction to teaching and the modern education/primary school world. It is easy to read and easy to understand, with a pleasant and lightly amusing writing style – perfect for the subject matter. This is a book about how to become a primary school teacher, not a formal, dry essay on education or pedagogy. It just has everything you need to know about the process of becoming a primary school teacher: not just the application process but the process or journey of personal and professional development needed to become a successful and inspiring teacher.
The information is gender neutral, whilst the book is intended for women (as shown in the readable preview introduction text) the contents are valuable for either gender. Don’t be put off if you are a man and want to read a paperback this book is as much suitable for you as it is for women really.
Overall a MUST read book for anyone thinking of or interested in how to become a primary school teacher and set their career off on the right foot – not so much for NQTs looking to purchase unless you need to improve your social skills or need some help dealing with colleagues, parents etc.
The tone is easy to access and an enjoyable read. Really good book :)
The first thing I read in the introduction after spending a portion of my hard-earned TA salary was... 'This book is aimed primarily at females'. Not the most helpful thing to read when the title certainly gave no indication that to be a Primary School teacher is to be female. Yes, I was aware of the book entitle 'How to become a male primary school teacher', but I am disappointed that this book being female-oriented was not made (much) clearer, if indeed it even needed a gender-divided strategy. It simply adds to the stigma surrounding males in the Primary School and keeps alive the assumption that Primary School Teacher = female. A product of a female-dominated profession or a contribution to the cause? I would suggest both.
As I say, there is useful information to be held onto but I will not be purchasing the male alternative any time soon and will be looking elsewhere for my Professional Development.
