Jordan Mayne is a teacher at Warout Primary School in Glenrothes. He has been involved with the RAiSE programme for more than a year. He said:
“I have found the support of the RAiSE PSDOs invaluable in terms of lesson inspiration and structure. I am applying this elements of this learning to other curricular areas.
“The encouragement from our local PSDO has been incredibly helpful. My first STEM lesson went well. The second didn’t – we ended up with a soaked classroom. The PSDO supported me in tweaking that lesson plan and, upon delivering it again, it was a success. I know now not to become discouraged if things don’t necessarily follow a set plan.
