NCETM Portal


The NCETM portal reflects the Centre’s commitment to personal learning. Each of the 7 headings show the major elements, with personal learning at its heart. As you explore the different areas of the portal (Resources, Teacher Enquiry, Community etc.) ask yourself, how the various sections relate to you, to your practice. Is there something you can take from a particular article, blog, resource etc. to develop your teaching? If so, do you want to make a note of it, or link to it, in your Personal Learning Space – so that you can come back to it in future, think more about it later, or tell colleagues about it?
