Event Description
In this session, the principles of learning and teaching will be explored within the context of leadership and the role as a deputy or assistant headteacher.

Delegates will also improve their observation and feedback skills and increase expertise in giving specific and constructive feedback. Participants are asked to consider how values, vision and aims should guide the work of the school and to share views on the school’s core purpose.

We will explore strategies for developing and improving the leadership of teaching, learning and assessment. Using Ofsted criteria, strategies for monitoring and evaluating teaching, learning and assessment are examined focusing particularly on the deputy’s role. We then consider how to provide effective feedback.
