Resources for trainee teachers and NQTs

We asked students in the University of the West of England's PGCE Secondary English Group to select articles from The Use of English they think will be of use to trainee and newly qualified teachers.

Selection criteria decided by the group:

  • Does the article ‘speak to me’ as a new teacher about English? About education?
  • Does it introduce me to an author I have not yet read but know I might teach next year?
  • Does it give me a new way into a text that I already know?
  • Would it have helped me with a PGCE course essay and I wish I had seen it earlier?!

We are pleased to be able to make these available as a free resource.
