As we work  to meet your needs in the constantly developing context, we see three key questions as our core pillars of delivery which will set our themes:

  1. How do we continue to be the best leaders we can be?

  2. How do we support and develop everyone’s well being and safety?

  3. How do we support children’s learning?

In response, we propose a blended learning approach to CPD, which will focus on the key three pillars outlined above and incorporate online sessions until face to face sessions can also be added in the blended learning mix.

The Teaching School will host The Thinking Room, a virtual space for discussion, reflection and learning, and will work with our extensive network to bring together leaders, staff, coaches and mentors for discussion, learning and reflection.

We have developed this offer by continuing to invite partners from our extensive network to host sessions and continue to give people the opportunity to learn from each other even when their normal practices have been disrupted. We are therefor delighted to be able to offer the following sessions and programmes:

1. How do we continue to be the best leaders we can be? NB Navigate back to this page by using the back button.

Pedagogical innovation and leadership in the early years

This report presents the findings of an independent evaluation study by the UCL Institute of Education of our “Outstanding Early Years Teaching” programme, and the participants’ experience of professional learning.

The researchers found that “Significantly, the findings showed evidence of participants’ applying their learning to changing and informing their settings’ practices, and for some, how this has resulted in initiating and leading change in key aspects of practice. Five key themes emerged: pedagogical tools to promote and extend children’s learning, shared and purposeful learning, reflective practice, twitter and virtual learning as an enabler and inhibitor, and perceived impact on practice and leadership. The findings highlighted the agency that was exercised by several practitioners in their development of pedagogical strategies to improve their practice and interactions with the children. Overall, participants were positive about the learning they had gained from being on the programme and appeared to benefit from the impact it had on their practice. The study provided strong evidence for sustaining and potentially scaling up of the early years teaching programme as a model of professional development and learning for nursery and preschool practitioners.” Read on [PDF]
