Dear new member,
Welcome to the team! We understand how difficult it is to transition from being a student to a teacher in your first year of work. In light of this, we would like to offer you more support. Beginning on the first Friday in October, we will hold weekly training meetings led by more senior staff to help you in your new role. These meetings are unpaid, and therefore, not mandatory. However, we feel that it is in your best interest to attend them for your own professional development.
