Becoming An Outstanding Teacher Course

Becoming An Outstanding Teacher Course Overview

The ethos of the Becoming An Outstanding Teacher is one of continuous self-reflection and self-improvement; where teachers are encouraged to take risks, explore new methods, share ideas and commit to changing their practice in the classroom.

Providing teachers with in-dept coaching tailored to self-assessment of their own teaching practice. It provides opportunities to deepen their understanding of high quality teaching and learning in the classroom.

This programme is unique in that it provides delegates with the opportunity to observe lessons in different establishments, at different key stages and in different subject areas.  Delegates are given the time to discuss, share good practice and evaluate.

Course Dates

The 2018-19 programme consists of six facilitated sessions.

Please be aware it is vital for delegates to have time to work and reflect on their development and we ask that headteachers allow their staff to stay for half an hour after the end time for lunch and group collaboration. All delegates would benefit from having a mentor within their organisation to support them throughout this process, who will meet regularly to discuss their development.
