Each term participants will focus on a different strand of effective practice: behaviour, instruction and subject. They will also develop understanding of how pupils learn.
The key learning from the three strands is outlined below:
What you'll learn
- Using routines to support behaviour management.
- Creating a positive learning environment.
- Support with overcoming low-level disruption.
- Supporting pupils through instruction based strategies such as questioning, scaffolding and explicit teaching.
- How to adapt teaching style to work for all pupils.
- The importance that prior knowledge plays learning.
- How to use feedback effectively.
- Creating good habits of planning to support learning goals.
- Strategies for examining and addressing the gaps and misconceptions pupils may have.
- Considering how literacy can be developed across all subjects.
How you'll learn
- 3 full-day conferences (focused on deepening their understanding of how pupils learn, the principles of responsive teaching, and effective implementation).
- 6 one-hour virtual clinics to support early career teachers with strategies for classroom practice, based on their study materials and key areas from Early Career Framework.
- Weekly modules of online learning. Self-study modules help early career teachers engage with the latest research and ideas for practical classroom implementation in a manageable and accessible way.
- Weekly instructional coaching sessions designed to support early career teachers to apply insights from the study materials into their classroom practice. Mentors will provide teachers with a specific, bite-sized action step to practice each week that responds to their own classroom context and practice.
