This programme is designed for primary school teachers with the desire to develop the quality of their teaching to ensure that challenge and engagement are at the heart of their classroom practice.

About the Programme
Through hands on activity based sessions, colleague development is significant both individually and across the group as practice is shared, explored and developed. Teachers develop knowledge, skills and pedagogical understanding as well as a wide range of strategies and techniques which impact directly on maximising pupil learning and progress.  The programme is over six weeks with post-sessional challenges woven in between each session. Delegates observe a number of lessons and engage in ward rounds.  The following areas are explored:

  • Challenge and Engagement
  • Starters and Plenaries
  • Assessment
  • Questioning
  • Differentiation

Requirements and duration
Schools will select a mentor for each of their delegates who will help to guide them through the post-sessional challenges. Mentors will assist delegates with organisational and practical elements of the programme including in-school lesson observations.  Mentors are required to attend a Mentor Briefing with delegates from 8.15-8.45on the first morning of the programme and to celebrate the successes of the programme during the final session.

How will my school benefit?
Delegates will bring back to school a wide range of techniques and strategies to enhance the key areas of teaching and learning including: Questioning, AfL and Differentiation, with which to apply in the classroom and share with colleagues.

How will my students benefit?
The implementation of the techniques delivered on the course will impact directly on the challenge and engagement offered to students and subsequent progress and attainment that the students achieve.
