The University of Warwick shares the government’s commitment to driving up and levelling up education standards, so that children and young people in every part of the country acquire the knowledge, skills, and qualifications they need to progress.
Perhaps, from the style of my writing, you might think that I have embarked on something new and this is an account of my wide-eyed discoveries. That is not the case. I’ve been teaching for twenty-five years. The landscape through which I have travelled in my working life has been populated by young people who have no idea how good they really are or what a massive contribution they could make to the world. Or how much we need them to do just that.
On World Book Day (March 4) this year, Warwick’s student teachers will be in an online lesson of their own, using books and bookmaking to inspire ideas and creative methods of teaching, while they look forward to getting back into a real classroom later this spring.
