Does your school need help in developing its readiness for inspection?
Do you want a pair of outsiders hands to help, ‘Honest Stockbrokers’ eyes to guide and help and support with your staff?
Do you want to know how to give yourself and your school the best chance of it going well?
Nothing sharpens the mind of a teacher quite like the prospect of a looming Inspection. There can be a tendency to panic, create too much unhelpful stress and ultimately fail to show your best. The best way to change this to 'keep the main thing, the main thing’.
This course will retain a strong focus on getting teaching and learning right in the classroom as the surest route to a successful Inspection. It will highlight the most frequent criticisms seen in Inspection reports (based on over 300 reports) and demonstrate how to avoid them being a criticism in yours.
