"How does the earnest, humble teacher manage to stay on top of the game? This book will hopefully help to answer that question. It is designed to provide down-to-earth guidance through the maze of responsibilities, challenges and expectations that underpin a successful first five years in the profession. Whether you are a curious outsider contemplating a career change, an NQT just 'starting out' or a more experienced practitioner looking to make the most of your developing skills, this is the book for you. It outlines what you have to do, explains why you have to do it, and gives practical advice on how to do it well." --Louisa Leaman
