Adam Nicholson – SLE Pen Portrait

SLE Specialism: Science, ITT & NQT Development

From starting my teaching practice in Barnsley I have taken an interest in Initial Teacher Training and this has been the focus of my career since. First becoming a mentor in 2012. I have mentored a wide range of trainee teachers from all of the local universities as well as several NQTs. I have also contributed to whole school improvement across in the schools I have worked in as well as other schools through partnership programmes.

I have worked to improve the standard of Science teaching, especially Physics, and implement schemes of work for the new curriculum changes.

I am experienced in working with members of staff to improve their practice and impact on student progress through personalised coaching as well as delivering specific and general CPD sessions.
