Prevent Bad Behaviour in the Classroom

Ugh! Bad behaviour is a pet hate for most teachers and teaching assistants. It is completely understandable as to why though – it can be disruptive for the rest of the class, mega hard to deal with and can also jeopardise the authoritative status that normally goes hand in hand with being a teacher. These factors can be even more challenging when you’re not a permanent member of staff and can also leave you feeling deflated if you deal with bad behaviour in a variety of schools.

The best way to eliminate the problem of bad behaviour is to squash it before it has the chance to become an even bigger issue. This is where we come in handy, the tips within this blog post aim to guide you in preventing bad behaviour in the classroom. Fingers crossed your days will run smoothly and bad behaviour free – here goes!

Social Media and Your Career

Sometimes it can be easy to forget how helpful social media is when it comes to shaping your career but also how effective it is as a tool to help you connect to that career. We’ve recently done a visit to University South Wales, where we were invited to chat about this topic to their BA Primary students. So, we came up with an insight on how to make the most out of social media and thought we would share the basics to the rest of you guys too! Read on to learn about branding yourself online and building your social media network. Most of us use social media on a daily basis. We’ve basically become obsessed with the thing, so it would be pretty rude not to use it to its fullest of advantages- right?

BEFORE WE START, HERE’S JUST A QUICK LITTLE FYI:

Although traditional job boards such as Reed and Indeed are a great way to job hunt, there is an enormous growth in recruiters resourcing candidates through social media platforms. Did you know that 92% of companies use social media to hire? Oh, and that 3 out of 4 managers check the candidate’s social media profiles? This study carried out by The Muse (2017) pretty much sums up the reason why you should make sure you’ve got your social media up to scratch!
