Leading and Managing the Challenges for Schools

How to Maximise Use of the Professional Standards

Two Important Workshops for Leaders and Teachers

This is the challenge. Developing your school as a functional learning organisation and ensuring successful implementation of the new curriculum will require high quality teaching supported by excellent leadership.

These two workshops will explore realistic ways in which schools can use the Professional Standards for Leadership, Teaching and Assisting Teaching to evaluate practices, identify strengths and secure developments.

The workshops will be practical, with delegates making use of our XLence Frameworks (provided free with the workshop) developed with schools to see how leaders and teachers can review their practice against the relevant Professional Standards. There will also be opportunity to purchase our newly produced framework for Teaching Assistants.

Delegates will also be able to sample and evaluate online tools designed to capture reviews and aid in their analysis.

The Workshops

Workshop 1 (Morning | 9.30 – 12.15)

Using the Standards to Review Practice

This workshop will cover:

  • reviewing practice against the standards;
  • identifying strengths and areas for development;
  • using outcomes to identify and meet professional learning needs;
  • using a range of evidence in the review process;
  • how to effectively record and analyse outcomes.

Delegates will receive free copies of the XLence Review Frameworks for Teaching and Leadership as part of the workshop cost (normally £125) and will get to trial our online 360 Review tool (seen above) during the session.

Workshop 2 (Afternoon | 1.00 – 3.30)

Using the Standards to Monitor Practice

This workshop will cover:

  • using a wide range of evidence in evaluating practice;
  • building effective and sustainable monitoring processes;

  • how monitoring supports review.

Delegates will receive free copies of the XLence Monitoring Frameworks for Teaching and Leadership as part of the workshop cost (normally £125) and will get to trial our online Teaching and Learning Development tool (seen above) during the session.
