The OLEVI Teaching and Learning Programmes are now well established and highly valued CPD opportunities. The local Teaching Schools, all of which are experienced, licensed providers of OTP and ITP, are collaborating to offer a uniquely diverse and rich experience.

Each Programme will be delivered at several venues, providing a broader and deeper perspective for participants. The same facilitators will deliver each programme to provide a stable learning platform for the group. Four Trafford Teaching Schools will offer and advertise all the programmes outlined below through their accustomed channels. Applicants can book a place with any school, who will provide their usual administrative support. Prior to each programme commencing, participants will be provided with all the necessary details collectively.

This programme is for teachers who are, or who have the potential to be, outstanding to develop their practice and help them carry out a whole school responsibility for teaching and learning.

What does it involve?

Each programme comprises nine sessions over nine weeks. Participants focus on a range of aspects of teaching and learning such as challenge, engagement, assessment, differentiation, questioning and planning. There are linked practical tasks back in your own school including applying what you learn and observation in host schools. Programme content includes:

  • What does an outstanding teacher look like?
  • Taboo, definitions, audit, strengths & weaknesses
  • Coaching
  • New learning on differentiation
  • Understanding assessment
  • In-school practice
  • Developing a success criteria
  • Action planning and evaluation
  • What is effective questioning?

What will it achieve?

Having completed the course participants will…

  • place a greater emphasis on the purpose and value of their lessons
  • raise levels of engagement and achievement in learning
  • use different teaching styles to challenge learners
  • innovate and take risks
  • plan more reflectively
  • demonstrate a higher level understanding of teaching
  • be able to coach colleagues to raise performance

Teachers on these programmes universally welcomed their impact on the quality of their teaching. School managers could point to measurable improvements in the quality of the teaching, with consequent improvements in outcomes for pupils. Their contribution to this overall analysis has been substantial. It shows that the quality of teaching in London secondary schools has been higher than for the rest of England; there is more good or outstanding teaching taking place.
