Following the success of our ‘Developing Excellence in Learning and Teaching with NAHT Aspire’ courses held this academic year, we are pleased to announce that we have further dates available in October 2018.
The course provides a clear method to improve teaching and learning that is welcomed by teachers. It is designed for headteachers, senior or subject leaders from primary, secondary and special schools. The course builds leadership capacity to create exemplary teaching and learning and provides delegates with the NAHT Aspire Quality Framework for Learning and Teaching to explore how it can be used to develop excellence. The approach replaces the difficulties of lesson observation, planning and work scrutiny with a more positive method that is welcomed by teachers and informs leaders better and can be used by phase/year and subject leaders as well as senior leaders with individual teachers, teams or whole school staff. Teachers report enthusiastically, taking accountability for their own improvement and seeking further impact from their teaching. Leaders say that it brings greater impact to their leadership and saves them time.
