I found it reassuring to quality assure, alongside other schools, that the provision for my pupils with SEND was effective. After each session, I had lots of takeaways to cascade to my colleagues to support pupils.

The Power of Great Teachers (Formally Move On Up)

Programme overview

The Power of Great Teaching Programme (formally Move On Up) is now open for registration. 

Great teachers continuously improve over time, benefitting from the mentoring of expert colleagues and a structured introduction to the core body of knowledge, skills and behaviours that define great teaching.

This programme takes an in depth look at the classroom teacher's toolkit, and covers the many features that contribute to excellent classroom teaching, such as instruction, discussion, observation and exploration. The programme is open to teachers in all phases and settings, from schools within the region.

The programme covers:

  • The underpinning evidence base, which evaluates the potential impact of particular planning and delivery strategies.
  • Examples of best practice through lesson observation, video analysis or work analysis.
  • Personal motivations and habits through discussion, debate and 'myth-busting' exercises.
  • Implementation strategies which support participants to change their practice and embed new and more effective routines and techniques.
  • Feedback and reflection on changes to practice.

 

Who's it for?

Whether you are a teacher who has missed out on elements of training due to Covid, you're returning to work after a period of absence, or you're an experienced teacher who would benefit refreshing your knowledge around teaching fundamentals, this programme is for you. It will provide you with an opportunity to reflect on, and analyse, the power of well-planned and well-delivered lessons, observe effective practice and network with like-minded people.  

With a track record of success in reconnecting teachers with their love of teaching, and rediscovering and consolidating existing expertise - it's a fantastic opportunity.

The programme is proven to work best for teachers who have the capacity to reflect upon and improve their own practice. We provide the support of outstanding facilitators, observation of excellent classroom practice, research materials, and practical resources which prompt sustainable change.

Not just theoretical, the programme offers lots of ideas from exceptional teachers in a range of subject areas

MFL Conference

Programme overview

Our annual MFL conference is designed to unite colleagues across Modern Foreign Languages, to discuss and share best practice with other practitioners. The conference will provide space for delegates to collaborate on strategies which impact on the quality of teaching and learning in languages. Alongside bookable workshops and a keynote from Dr Conti, the day will provide time to work as a team alongside workshop facilitators, to plan, develop and share resources which can be taken back to school ready for use in the next academic year.

 

The programme gave me the opportunity to share ideas with colleagues, pick up new information and also look at new approaches to SEND practice and how they could work in our setting. It was also a really useful way to meet up with people in a similar job role and have a sounding board for ideas, or just talk about the frustrations we were facing, and possible solutions!
