Episode 4 - Follow the Lead Practitioner with Charlotte Harvey
After a longer than expected break brought about by a loss of voice issue and then Christmas (Happy New Year!), this week sees us talk with Charlotte Harvey, Lead Practitioner at Tolworth School and Teach First alumna. Charlotte reflects on the role of Lead Practitioner in general and the pitfalls that schools can fall into when trying to make the best use of the role. We also take a moment to look at how to get the best out of mentoring relationships in school, as well as how to best judge if a lesson isn't working and how to best change tack. Charlotte talks to us about what got her into teaching, why she decided to take the Teach First route, and what makes her despair about changes to GCSE and A level.
