This course, aimed at NQTs and returning teachers, is designed to cover the key components of good practice in day-to-day formative assessment, based on up-to-date thinking and research.
Establishing the right classroom ethos for Assessment for Learning (AfL) to have maximum impact on pupils' progress is key, and this course will explore practical classroom strategies to embed a new culture of learning in every classroom that breeds resilience and confidence in learners while also raising aspirations and fostering wellbeing.
Topics covered in the course include developing the growth mindset, setting good learning objectives, generating success criteria with pupils and using these effectively, feeding back to pupils about their learning, language for learning, enabling pupils to carry out peer and self-assessment, and good quality questioning to move learning forward.
This course is most suitable to NQTs and those teachers early in their career. This course would also suit overseas trained teachers and those returning to teaching.
