Outstanding Teacher Programme

Outstanding Teacher Programme

The Outstanding Teacher Programme, delivered at Woodside High School, is used by the National College for Teaching & Leadership to empower teachers to consistently deliver high quality lessons. Through practical and interactive development sessions, participants will build confidence as they generate ideas and strategies on how to improve their practice.

Who is it for?

This programme is for teachers who want to advance, develop and improve their teaching practice and deliver consistently high quality lessons.

What will it achieve?

Having completed the programme, participants will:

  • understand the key concepts underpinning good practice in the classroom
  • be aware of the impacts of these concepts on good teaching and learning
  • provide students with the best possible learning experience
  • improve standards in their school
  • increase their job satisfaction
  • work more effectively as an active member of the school team

What does it involve?

Each programme comprises six sessions over six weeks and is delivered by outstanding teachers. Learning takes place through face to face sessions that include observation, practical activities, feedback and also through mentoring.

Participants work in ‘Learning Threes’ and gain most where schools are able to send three teachers on the same course, as practical school-based tasks are based on these groups of three. This sort of collaborative learning, supported by facilitators, and the quality of content, are what the evidence suggest make the difference between a conventional course and our programme.
