How will I be assessed?

Not applicable

As schools need to make highly accurate judgements about pupils learning outcomes, all teachers need to be continually aware of the impact their teaching is having on the learning experiences and the progress their pupils are making.

The training session will examine: the current emphasis of inspections, how to observe lessons using Ofsted methods, how good internal classroom observation can be used to raise standards and fulfil Leadership and management criteria, and how using a variety of teaching styles and compelling learning experiences can be linked to improving attainment and progress.

Delegates will have the opportunity to observe a range of filmed lessons and discuss and evaluate their content.
