''It’s the best way I've seen of improving the quality of teaching''

What is the Quality Framework for Learning and Teaching?
The Quality Framework for Learning and Teaching provides a language that sets out the behaviours that characterise learning and teaching in classrooms every day, for learners, for teachers and for support assistants. It is therefore a reference resource, or a toolkit that can be used in many ways to improve the quality and consistency of professional practice for individual teachers or as a whole school.
It has been designed to:
Help teachers and support assistants in reflecting on their own professional behaviours
Help them to consider the impact of these behaviours on learners and their learning
Help them plan for future strategies and behaviours to ensure the most effective learning by their learners
Linked to the Ofsted Schedule for School Inspection, as well as the Teachers’ Standards, it is organised in a logical manner and in progressive detail so that teachers can explore all aspects of teaching and learning, identify their development needs based on a coherent assessment rubric, and examine the behaviours they will see when these needs have been met.
