Sue Cowley takes the newly appointed teacher step by step through the first year, starting with things that nobody tells you
- TES New Teachers supplement
The book works as one which you read from cover to cover or as one you can dip into as required...I particularly appreciated and enjoyed the section on ten tried-and-tested teaching tips...I would recommend this book highly.
- Dr Liane Purnell, Newman University
straightforward, solid advice that's easy to absorb and can be put into practice from Day One...
- Teach Secondary
Super synopsis around planning, some clear, honest tips about staffing...overall a useful book to allow NQTs to develop their identity from a trainee to an NQT and into a qualified teacher.
- Programme Director BA Ed Primary, University of Reading
Very practical and well-written in an engaging style. Sue Cowley has a good track record on popular education texts and this is sure to be another winner. --- Primary PGCE programme director, Durham University

Used the books as gifts for my recently qualified trainees they were most impressed... Will know how good the book was in a year or so's time...
Amazingly, despite completing my training and leaving my second placement full of confidence, I quit my NQT job back in March for various reasons and I needed a bit of a confidence boost before I leapt into supply work. At the time, this was it.
It's divided into well thought out sections covering everything from "Before you start" to "Professional development and promotion".
If you've had an excellent teacher training period and proactive/helpful mentors in your placements, and you took the time to find a school that works for you and your NQT year, then reading this will provide you with a source of comfort and satisfaction over the next few months.
For me, as someone with two terms of NQT experience, the chapters and sections I found most helpful were "Climbing the Paper Mountain" and possibly "The First Lesson". However a lot of what I read was relatively straight forward and each school is different, so in reality you do learn on the job.
So not essential, but certainly worthy of perusal in any spare moment you may have.
Thankfully I now have a new job to go to in September, at a school which is more "me".
Good luck if you're starting your NQT year in a few weeks time!
It covers classroom practice, management and also dealing with colleagues. There are tips how to deal with behaviour issues and also how to manage your time.
A great read that covers situations we are all familiar with.
