This was superb. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience

The Improving Teacher Programme is for schools and teachers who want to advance, develop and improve their teaching practice and deliver consistently good lessons. The end result is a motivated teacher with the tools and expertise to succeed, leading not only to enhanced classroom and pupil performance but also higher standards across the school.

Participants will know how to deliver key concepts through consistent practice.
It will deliver an invaluable opportunity for teachers to pick up successful techniques and formulate new strategies to bring back to their own classroom from observing and analysing best practice.
