Developing Excellence in Practice

Secondary Practitioner Programme 2019-2020

 

The aim of the programme is to develop a teacher who can reflect on teaching with the tools to enable and raise levels of engagement in learning, through providing consistently excellent lessons; an innovative teacher who is willing to take risks.

 

The programme comprises 6 sessions over 3 terms. Within this, there are linked practical tasks back in your school including applying what you learn and observation in the host school. Participants focus on a range of aspects of teaching and learning such as challenge, engagement, assessment, differentiation, questioning and planning.

 

 

What will it deliver?

  • Introduce and consolidate new knowledge and skills, and focus on what constitutes excellent practice in teaching and learning
  • Provide in-depth coaching to deepen teachers' understanding of excellent classroom practice. Participants improve through facilitated practice activities as structured opportunities to reflect on teaching approaches and their quality and impact.
  • Provide an opportunity for teachers to see excellent teaching in a host school.
  • Provide an opportunity for teachers to be observed in their own school by specialists and to discuss how practice might be further enhanced.
  • Develop a higher level of understanding of teaching and improve learning for students while providing the techniques to 'coach' colleagues and raise performance.

Candidates must:

  • be a high quality practitioner with at least three years' teaching experience.
