'How to Become a Successful TES Author - Step by Step Guide' - A 'Must Have' For Authors!

'How to Become a Successful TES Author - Step by Step Guide' - A 'Must Have' For Authors!

I began to produce educational resources for TES in August 2015. When I look back at my early resources I cringe! I made so many mistakes…. Since then I have come a long way and learned so much. I currently have 38 TES recommended resources. One of my resources made over 900 sales in the space of a few weeks and earned nearly £2000 in royalties. I have recently been shortlisted as one of eight nominees for the TES 2017, Bev Evans, Author of the Year Award.In this 26-page, step by step guide I share my mistakes and my successes to help you avoid making the same mistakes and to become a successful author sooner than you would have done without this guide. I do not claim to have all the answers and ‘my way’ might not be other people’s way. However, whether you are a potential author, an author starting out or already an author; I am sure that this guide can help you in some way and will prove a worthwhile investment. The guide includes advice on Making resourcesMaximising the selling potential of resourcesCreating a cover pageSourcing imagesCopyrighting your resourcesPricing your resourcesProduct DescriptionsHTML codes for creating bold, italics, underlining, bullet pints and numbered lists for product description pageAdding links to other products and your shop in descriptionsCreating your TES shopBrandingIncreasing the visibility of your resourcesPromoting your products through social media platformsPromoting yourselfDealing with reviewsGeneral advice The resource also contains hyperlinks to some very useful sites and tools which will help you in making and promoting your products.Other Resources for AuthorsAuthor Calendar and Planner Nine out of ten of my top selling resources are seasonal resources and special days resources.

No more missing special days or not allocating yourself enough time to produce resources.

The StressFreeClassroom - an audio guide to dealing with classroom stress.

The StressFreeClassroom - an audio guide to dealing with classroom stress.

Hi. Steve here.I wrote and recorded this program for you if you're a stressed teacher.Maybe you're fed up, like I was, with the downsides of teaching, dealing with a lethal combination of a heavy work-load, constant pressure, a sense of being undervalued and regular situations that just made we want to "ESCAPE!"Relaxing with meditation tapes, more beach holidays, reorganising and reprioritising... they only went so far to help.Tired of waiting for change, I finally did something about it. After all, this was my life!Yep. I quit teaching!But that wasn't the end of the story.Now I say: there is hope for a better classroom experience, and it's not been your fault.In the program is the equipment for your effective career transformation.As I learnt, none of my school experience, whether it was in complex-needs, professional development, mentoring, inner-city schools, tutoring of autistic students, approved teacher status for dyslexia and specific learning difficulties, subject leadership... no lesson was ever enough to know what to do about feeling so *&"%.Driven to investigate - and invest in myself - I studied all kinds of practice and psychology including the latest in Neuro-Linguistic-Programming, Direct Instruction, Discovery Learning and Human Needs Psychology™. I read books, listened to top thinkers, attended expensive training and tried new technologies like binaural beat meditation.Some shocking and helpful discoveries were made: it disturbed me that we aren't educated, or trained to successfullly deal with stress - because it's not rocket science. But it is time to move out of 'industrial age' classroom thinking!By applying and combining specific techniques - as what we do is 80% psychology - I coordinated the most simple, valuable and useful thought-tools that apply to helping you: the teacher.It's all in The Stress-Free Classroom, and even I'm back teaching. And I use it all - Every.Single.Day.Of-course you don’t need to be a trained psychologist or doctor to benefit and this program is in no way a substitute for professional help.Still, you can apply each step-by-step technique any time you need it, on the spot, and expel stress in under 30 seconds.My teaching - my livelihood - was on the line; the program is written with yours in mind.You get everything you need to know in an instantly accessible, compact, fatigue-reviving 50 minutes of listen-anywhere-mp3 in your life :)It's less time than an episode of The Walking Dead, (which is exactly what I felt like).Enough is enough. Just do it. All questions welcomed, and please let me know how you grow. Steve.

Training Needs Analysis forms for use in Computer Training

Training Needs Analysis forms for use in Computer Training

These forms cover Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and Outlook as well as a basic users form. When planning computer training it is essential to have an idea of the skill level of participants. You can hand out or email these forms to learners before or during a session. They simply fill them out and return them. You can then use the information to split up groups into appropriate skill levels or just for general content planning for the session.I have also included a Feedback form that can be used to hand out after the session. They are in Word format so that you can easily remove or add any of the skills.I have used these for corporate groups and community groups successfully.
