Teacher Persona workshops
"Claire Grosvenor has worked with a number of groups of our PGCE Secondary Teacher trainees during the year 2010-11 as part of our Education and Professional Studies module. These workshops have been both short introductory sessions during Induction week and longer day and half day sessions as part of our electives programme. These electives tend to cover areas which are outside our official remit as teacher trainer providers but which we as tutors and also evaluations from our trainees show to be vitally important to aid them on their professional journey. Claire’s Teacher Persona workshops have been extremely well received with over 90% of the trainees’ evaluations saying that the workshops both supported their awareness of wider issues in schools and were extremely useful for intending teachers. The practical and hands on nature of the work she does and the advice and tips were much appreciated. A selection of comments from the evaluations were; “Presenter brilliant”, “Terrific presentation. Enabled me to understand my body language when teaching.”, “Built my self-confidence” and “Very informative, I love these workshops, more please!”.
I would highly recommend Claire to other ITE institution."
