About the Author

Sara Bubb is an experienced London teacher who helps staff in schools develop. She does this in many ways: through leading professional development, assessing, developing schemes, researching, and writing.

With a national and international reputation in the induction of new teachers and professional development, Sara speaks at conferences and runs courses throughout the country and abroad (e.g. Norway, Taiwan) on topics such as helping staff develop, observation skills, induction, developing pedagogical skills, leading continuing professional development (CPD), subject leadership, monitoring teaching and implementing performance management. She has featured on and been a consultant for eight Teachers TV programmes. She trains a broad range of people, including inspectors, assessors, advisers, consultants, Fasttrack, Teach First and advanced skills teachers.

Sara assesses advanced skills, excellent, overseas trained and graduate teachers and higher level teaching assistants and was an external assessor for Threshold. She has inspected over 25 primary schools.

As a senior lecturer at the Institute of Education (0.2) she works on PGCE and Masters programmes and set up the employment-based routes (OTT and GTP) to QTS. She is lead director of the Cf BT Education Trust-funded Sef2Si – From Self Evaluation To School Improvement: The Importance Of Professional Development – project. She co-directed the Df ES-funded national research Project on the Effectiveness of the Induction Year, was deputy director of the TDA systematic review of induction research and has helped the Northern Ireland GTC revise their teacher competences.

On a 0.2 secondment to the DCSF London Challenge team, Sara is the consultant for Chartered London Teacher status – a scheme involving over 38,600 teachers. She is the London Gifted & Talented Early Years network leader, working with staff in reception and nursery classes to enhance their provision for all children, especially the most able.

She has written books and numerous articles on induction, professional development, workload, and performance management. She is the new teacher expert at the Times Educational Supplement, and writes articles, a weekly advice column and answers questions on its website.
