A one-day guide to becoming a highly effective teacher
With Nina Jackson
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 Estyn 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 a highly effective 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. Take a look at The Perfect Teacher (Wales) programme.
All delegates at the workshop will receive a free copy of the Perfect Teacher book and a pack of teaching resources to take away!
