Who should attend?

This is a course designed for class teachers to reflect on their current practice and develop new strategies to measure progress and 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.

This session is highly practical and interactive. Teachers will leave with a clear set of strategies and interventions which they can adopt in there very next lesson.

This course will include:

Measuring Progress
