In this programme, Miranda Krestovnikoff heads to the rescue of trainee teacher Michaelina, who wants some advice on classroom observations.
Michaelina is in her second placement school and is worried about Ofsted, passing her NQT year observations and getting the most from observing other teachers.
To try to answer her questions Miranda meets up with Australian body language guru Allan Pease to find out how to avoid looking nervous. She then asks former school inspector turned bestselling author Gervase Phinn if it's possible to pull the wool over the inspector's eyes.
Finally Miranda has a chat with Rona Tutt, one-time president of the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT), for advice on how to do your best in inspections and what sort of feedback to expect from observations. Will all this advice help boost Michaelina's confidence?
