The foundation level comprises of one two-day workshop equating to two days of contact time.
On this first day we will explore what makes an effective teacher, how to optimise the conditions for learning, how to bring passion, flair and creativity to the classroom and develop your understanding of how the brain works. This day is supported with a strong evidence base, including essential reading of relevant research and literature from leading pedagogical experts, research organisations and online resources.
Questioning is the most important tool for a teacher. It provides engagement, pace, challenge and imbues curiosity, independence and resilience. This day looks at how we can develop this skill, with a range of inspirational and practical approaches to improve teacher questioning. There will also be an opportunity to look at high quality digital resources to support delivery, increase engagement and facilitate rapid assessment.
