Qualified teachers who have had a break from the classroom are being offered free tailored support to enable them to return to teach the core subjects, like Maths and Physics, which can help children to reach their full potential. The range of support on offer could include training to update their knowledge of classroom practice, or subject knowledge, to behaviour management and assessment frameworks - as well as other current education initiatives.
