There are talks. If you’re new or your training needs refreshing, really basic stuff such as safeguarding. Sometimes SEN things. No one really seems to learn anything, so teachers and other staff members don’t enjoy them

Hello

It depends when the INSET are within the year and what the school improvement plans suggest. For example, every year teachers need training in matters of safe-guarding. This usually happens on the first INSET after the summer holidays. Then there will be time spent considering any changes in curriculum or assessment. Teachers may do some team planning, moderation or their assessments or develop resources together. Other times we'd have input from the SEND department, and learn new techniques of supporting children with additional needs.

I used to quite enjoy the INSET days, but I'd be shattered at the end of them as I was always learning new things! I think that some schools are better than others and I know of some where INSET can mean death by power-point! Often the session will be on moving from didactic learning!

Varies depending on each school! We have a variety of topics in INSET from safeguarding, time management, collecting data, how to close the gap, growth mindset, generally whole school issues and then perhaps department related training in the afternoon. It can be very insightful and a chance for staff to work as a whole and integrate!
