CPD for Curriculum Quality, Outstanding Pedagogy and Seamless Learning
The future of education is in the hands of educators, new, developing and experienced. Strong leadership and highly knowledgeable teams will enhance learning and take forward exciting and innovative strategies to support high quality education outcomes for all. There are many pressing avenues that all leaders of education who want to return to a new but refreshing normality will need to prioritise as they pursue what will have the greatest impact and provide the most evidence to deserve the accolade of excellent or outstanding.
Sequencing and quality assuring the curriculum, prioritising literacy especially reading, the mastery of mathematics, thinking and working scientifically, building highly successful teams, skilling subject experts to deliver outstanding pedagogy, seamless learning across transition bridges and mentoring ECTs using the new framework, are some of the many preoccupations that might impede sleep or make the most positive leader overwhelmed.
Positive and effective CPD where the emphasis is on the C for continuing and consistent opportunities for all staff to work together to achieve the vision and learn from each other must be deliberately and carefully planned so that continuous improvement is assured.
Creating sustainable, cost – effective and highly effective CPD
Learning Cultures has been in the business of educating educators for 12 years now. Every member of our own exceptional team have worked as senior leaders in education; schools, colleges, universities or professional bodies. We have a philosophy, originally built on high quality sector led research, that stand alone CPD that is not shared and cascaded widely has very limited impact. CPD that is designed to be shared, emphasises the essential need for reflection and creates opportunities for professional learning conversations to take place over time will influence change, foster positive and effective professional development and build exceptional teams.
This philosophy is enhanced by our commitment to coaching, the single most influential pedagogy for continuous learning there is. Coaching is all about positive language, highly potent questioning, a deep commitment to sharing and cascading good and excellent practice and a sincere belief that all individuals, staff and pupils can achieve more and be successful in their endeavours.
Building a high impact CPD strategy for whole school cohesion
Learning Cultures design their training courses, INSET days and longer certification programmes by paying unrelenting attention to sector-led research, current policy and the deep experience we all have of what makes a significant difference to learning.
