Leading Consistently Good Teaching (Primary)
The course is aimed at supporting primary middle leaders to promote consistently good teaching and learning within their phases.
Run over three twilight sessions, leaders will explore strategies to embed good practice within the phase they lead related to a range of topics using monitoring, modelling and dialogue. Leaders will be asked to complete a brief online diagnostic prior to the first session so that the course can be tailored to meet the needs of delegates. Over the three sessions, delegates will have the opportunity to put the practice into place in their schools prior to reviewing at the next session. It would be most effective if delegates had the opportunity to meet with a school based mentor/coach in-between each session.
The course is suitable for both experienced middle leaders as well as those new to post.
