Understanding the ISI Approach to Lesson Observation
This course will explore how ISI lesson observation contributes to evidence of the extent of a school’s compliance with the Independent School Standards Regulations (ISSRS) and other relevant regulations. It also explores how lesson observations can shed light on the quality of pupils’ outcomes; and how highly effective lesson observation is used to inform and improve outstanding learning and teaching.
This course could be offered as one to one or small group mentoring.
JMC Mentoring can be either face to face or online.
We have an extensive range of Primary/Secondary/Independent and International school leaders ready to act as your mentor or critical friend.
