Code: REA-009 Towards Excellence Phase Two - South Central

Staff reflect on and debate the way they teach. They feel deeply involved in their own professional development. Leaders have created a climate in which teachers are motivated and trusted to take risks and innovate in ways that are right for their pupils.’ OfSTED Outstanding judgement, ‘Effectiveness of Leadership and Management’. Aim: Solidly good teachers do not automatically transition to outstanding over time. This programme intends to enthuse teachers and equip them with the skills and attitudes to be able to take life long ownership over their professional development, so that the quest for improvement becomes internalised and sustained independently of outside intervention. The programme seeks to equip teachers with the practical ideas and resources necessary to become outstanding practitioners, so schools can foster a self-sustaining, self-developing, and self-motivating workforce, who make a positive contribution to their school’s culture and ethos. Intention for the programme: • To develop participants’ ability to be life-long learners • To underline development with the most current research from education • To develop participants’ coaching skills • To roll the programme out over two terms of development • To identify and develop the ‘bundle of behaviours’ that indicates the difference between outstanding and good practitioners • To draw on securely research-evidenced feedback on what makes effective practice and CPD • To have a wider impact at school Structure for the Programme: The themes that are covered and participants are expected to work on in schools, drawn on research from IoE and the EEF, and have been designed by ETSA school leaders. Each session will require participants to try out new practices, and report back on the impact the following week. Halfway through the programme, participants decide on an area of practice to develop in school: they may do this in discussion with SLT. They carry out a piece of development similar to action research – but not requiring the paper trail, to ensure that the focus on improvement is solidly in practice: so they work differently not additionally. The focus of improvement involves working with two or three schools colleagues, to try out the innovation and build capacity in school. On completion of the programme, the participants share their findings of what impacts best on children’s learning, with all other programme delegates - school leaders are welcome to attend.
