  • Every teacher has their own style, method and delivery to achieve great progress for their learners. Teachers have never had so much accountability and pressure to achieve outcomes as they do today – from curriculum changes to planning outstanding lessons, from demonstrating progress to Ofsted to closing the gap in performance for all pupils and teachers - it can become overwhelming.

    This unique one-day workshop will show you the steps you need to take to become an outstanding teacher, and revive your passion for teaching. Packed with practical strategies, examples and resources to take back to school, this workshop shows you how to be the best teacher you can be, and still have time for a life. If you are leading on teaching and learning, this course will help you support your teachers to achieve consistency and confidence in the classroom. Don’t miss this inspirational guide to becoming outstanding – there are limited spaces available on this course.

    The workshop is led by inspirational trainer, author and former outstanding Headteacher, Jackie Beere OBE. Jackie is author of The Perfect Teacher book, which is the newest launch in her best-selling ‘perfect’ book series by Crownhouse Publishing. Take a look at The Perfect Teacher workshop programme.

    John Beasley

    Consultant, author and copy editor of the ‘Perfect Ofsted’ book series

    John is a freelance educational consultant and teacher trainer, renowned for his dynamic and practical training sessions. Married to Jackie Beere OBE, he has helped in the production of her books including the best-selling The Perfect (Ofsted) Lesson and is editor of The Perfect Teacher. He is now writing The Perfect (Ofsted) Science Lesson.

    John has had a successful twenty-five year career teaching science in secondary schools leading to posts as head of science and deputy headteacher. He now works with schools in all phases delivering INSET on topics such as: Resilient Learners, Growth Mindset in Schools, The Perfect (Ofsted) Lesson, Effective AfL, Coaching for Improvement and Preparing for Inspection.

    These interactive, practical training events give guidance on the habits and mindsets of great learners, underpinned by research evidence. They also contain advice on engaging starters, motivational lesson activities and effective plenaries and show how to give feedback which really works to improve progress. His coaching course shows how school leaders and teachers can transform their practice through brief, effective coaching sessions. All of these popular INSET sessions are closely referenced to good practice advice from Ofsted. One of John’s specialisms is helping schools develop a growth mindset amongst their teachers and learners to create a culture of learning and high achievement.

    John has also worked for Canterbury Christ Church and Middlesex Universities on initial teacher training and for Hibernia College on the novel eLearn ITT course. Through supporting and assessing trainee teachers, John has become an expert in targeted lesson observations. He has used this very effectively in science (and other) faculties who have found his feedback and opinions on staff performance to be very accurate and insightful.
