Enhancing Teaching Programme

The programme will enable teachers in the first four years of their careers to reach their full potential as outstanding educators and future leaders.

Overview

The Enhancing Teaching Programme combines expert input from successful practitioners, with the opportunity for participants to apply and reflect on their learning in a structured way. Participants can also network with teachers from a range of schools.

Sessions are organised in pairs, with each pair focusing on a key theme of effective teaching practice, and the chance to test approaches in between. Sessions cover:

  • Overcoming psychological barriers to learning
  • How to be an inspirational, outstanding teacher in an age of objective-driven learning (with a particular focus on English and maths)
  • Leading, delegating and prioritising
