Regency Hotel, 100 Queens Gate, London SW7 5AG, United Kingdom
A course for Independent Schools to help make sense of the latest OCT 2014 changes to Ofsted Criteria and to ensure that their own observation judgements are in tune with Ofsted's latest expectations.
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.
This course is suitable for all senior staff and team leaders involved with classroom observation and professional development. Indeed all teaching staff will find it helpful to understand what Ofsted are looking for in an outstanding lesson and what the teacher now needs to demonstrate to achieve this.
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.
