INSET : Raising Academic Achievement – High Impact Strategies for Class-teachers & School Leaders

Lots of good ideas that I can use tomorrow, exactly what I want from CPD  Alison Yates, Year Leader, Harlington Upper School

Strategies to promote high levels of progress and achievement in the classroom

With so much information available to teachers on improving teaching and learning we are left wondering:

  • Which interventions really work?
  • Which strategies add the most value and cost the least?
  • Which are the most accessible for all of our teachers
  • …and how do they work, not just in theory, but in practice?

This is a course designed for class teachers to reflect on their current practice and develop new strategies to motivate students towards higher levels of progress and achievement. The single biggest contributory factor to a pupil’s attainment and progress is the quality of teaching; this is even more marked for disadvantaged and vulnerable students (double the effect in fact) so the continued improvement of teaching and learning in schools has to be our number one priority.
