Those leading teacher development have the potential to nurture a culture of professional learning that enables staff and pupils to thrive.
With influence over the design and delivery of professional development as well as implementation, leaders of teacher development play a vital role in school improvement.
The National Professional Qualification for Leading Teacher Development (NPQLTD) is aimed at teachers who lead, or aspire to lead, the development of other teachers in their school. Responsibilities may include the development of all teachers across a school or specifically trainees or teachers who are early in their career.
Our delivery model is grounded in tried-and-tested evidence of effective school improvement from both the UK and US. The programmes are underpinned by theory, mapped for progression across all qualification levels, and application of learning prioritised to facilitate successful implementation.
The programme will use ‘see it, name it, do it’ as an organisational structure for scaffolding learning to the point of mastery. The model is a highly applied and personalised approach coined by the internationally renowned Leverage Leadership Institute.
- See it: The approach goes beyond theory by using current, real-life models of exemplary practice
- Name it: By identifying features of exemplary practice, the invisible is made visible. Participants reflect on their current practice and name their ‘gaps’
- Do it: Participants are guided through implementation planning with time for practice, peer feedback and the use of gap tasks. As part of formative assessment, participants then ‘fix their gaps’ by applying their learning in school.
EMBEDDED ASSESSMENT PRACTICE
Opportunities to ‘do it’, through practice and planning give the best chance of successful implementation and lead to rapid school improvement. Application of learning provides regular practice opportunities for final scenario-based assessment.
The programme is made up of a blend of synchronous and asynchronous components totalling a maximum of four days plus self study.
