TEACHING AND LEARNING

 

Through the Developing Teaching Programme (DTP) and Outstanding Teaching Programme (OTP) delegates can spend time outside of their own setting developing skills which are necessary to be a great classroom practitioner. This could be to develop a certain area of their teaching as the programmes are developed to support a wide range of teaching activities. The OTP builds on the DTP by providing an additional coaching unit to enable participants to develop their skills as a coach.

Dynamic Sixth Form Teaching

Teaching Success at Sixth Form 2019-2020

 

This programme specifically focuses on KS5 teaching with the aim to develop teacher skills and confidence in how to effectively teach subjects at sixth form.

 

With schools often concentrating on KS4 due to the crucial importance of GCSE grades, teachers can be left to find their own way when teaching A level subjects. These courses often challenge teachers regarding how best to deliver them and are of the upmost importance to the students and their future progression. Now that the recent government changes are embedded, it is the perfect time to explore ways of ensuring your sixth form teaching is dynamic, purposeful and successful.
