    Lead Practitioner

    The programme has helped me to understand how to facilitate teaching and learning sessions within my department, and has helped to consolidate my knowledge in terms of lesson observations, coaching and mentoring.

    Who is the programme for?

    This is an ideal programme for current or aspiring Lead Practitioners, SLEs or middle and senior leaders who work to support teachers to improve their teaching.

    What is involved?

    This programme runs annually and is free to all member schools. It explores the evidence base for the effective design and facilitation of teacher professional development, including session and programme design and the evaluation of professional development. The programme also explores what is known about effective ways to develop teachers’ practice, both within and beyond one school. All participants are supported to identify their own strengths and areas for development.

    The sessions include exploration of research evidence and theories, as well as opportunities to consider how these apply to your own experiences and context. There will be inter-session tasks which support participants to apply their learning to their day-to-day work as a leader of teaching and learning.

    Session details

    The programme is led by Sarah Seleznyov, Director, London South Teaching School Alliance. All sessions will be held at Alfred Salter Primary School, Quebec Way, London SE16 7LP,
