‘Some books are sure to become instant classics. Year one falls into that category: easy to read, accessible, covering both the basics and the more complex and challenging. It provides a compendium of professional advice, combines wisdom from across the sector, all crafted carefully by David and Michael to produce a highly useful guide which is also beautiful to navigate. This book is mentor, cheerleader, professional friend, coach and tutor, a superb literary warm welcome to the profession for early career teachers.’

Michael Chiles and David Goodwin, have teamed up with a host of guest authors and experts in education, to present Year One: Lighting the path on your first year in teaching, published by John Catt Educational, a comprehensive guide for all newly qualified teachers as they begin their career journey.

Michael and David provide clear guidance on key practical pedagogy, from establishing routines, understanding curriculum and building relationships, to supporting teachers in preparing for their first interview. Each technique, supported by research-based evidence and expertly illustrated, unlocks the complexity of the classroom and supports practitioners entering the profession.

We believe we have achieved this and Year One proves to be a valuable resource for ECTs.’
