Every Lesson Outstanding

Tuesday 7th February 2017

The Every Lesson Outstanding Programme has been written by a collaborative of seven North East Teaching Schools. 

Comprising four half-days the programme aims to challenge teachers to develop their knowledge, understanding and everyday practice so that they consistently and confidently deliver lessons of the very highest quality . The programme will enable participants to
·         Know the key concepts underpinning outstanding practice
·         Understand the impact of these concepts in developing  excellent learning
·         Deliver these concepts through consistent practice
·         Self-assess and audit their own teaching through learning activities, lesson    observations, facilitated  de-briefs and follow up mentoring

Creative practical strategies to support children who are finding it difficult to engage in class: Dealing with pupils who are struggling emotionally and behaviourally and have difficulty expressing themselves verbally. For TAs and Teaching Staff.
