Programme summary

Designed by Olevi, facilitated by experienced teachers, the ITP:"A really positive experience which has challenged my thinking and made an impact on my teaching."

  • provides improving teachers with in-depth coaching, tailored to a self-assessment of their teaching
  • provides opportunities to deepen their understanding of high-quality classroom practice and teaching and learning. Participants improve their teaching through facilitated practice, observation of colleagues and working with ‘live’ students
  • supports a wider range of teaching activities, including: planning lessons, starter activities, plenary sessions, questioning techniques, engaging in learning, challenging learning, assessment and differentiation strategies
  • supports the aims and implementation of school improvement plans and other national agendas
  • forms part of the professional development provision or entitlement for staff development within the school’s improvement plan
  • builds confidence of staff to become used to class observations and adopt a positive “can do” attitude.

This course is led by highly experienced teachers and qualified Olevi facilitators.
