Given the challenging curriculum expectations and aims, it is crucial that leaders have an accurate view of the learning strengths and areas for development in each cohort.This accurate view supports leaders to identify the actions that are needed to improve learning.
This course will support subject leaders in reflecting upon evidence and identifying next steps to plan for the year ahead. Through exemplification and discussion, delegates will explore strategies to develop teaching and learning throughout their school, evaluating a range of exciting and innovative CPD models for their staff. Whether new to subject leadership or in post for a while, this course will support delegates in their roles as mathematics leaders.
This full day course is for new governors for schools, academies and MAT's. This course is very important for all new governors so that they can be as effective as possible in helping the governing board in its role to secure school improvement. Delegates benefit from the opportunity to network with new governors from other schools and academies.
We recommend that all new governors attend the ‘Induction for governors’ course within the first 3 months of being appointed. In particular new governors derive maximum benefit if they book onto a course which takes place after they have attended at least one governing board meeting.
The three key roles of the governing board that will be covered during the course are:
1. vision and strategic
2. holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school
3. Financial management and best value
Delegates will also receive an insight into how to get to know your school and taking part in effective meetings. The course will use a variety of teaching strategies including group discussion, case studies and tutor input.
Governors that buy into a HfL MAT packagewill be charged £100 for their attendance.
Computer technology has long been used, in schools and beyond, to support pupils with SEND. With the emergence of tablets and the many exciting and engaging apps available, there are now even more ways in which technology can help these pupils to learn, using the full functionality of these devices. In this hands-on course, we will explore ways in which tablets (particularly iPads) can be used to support the learning of pupils with SEND. We will look at how to make iPads inclusive, and apps specifically designed for these learners. We will also look at how 'general' educational apps can be used in alternative ways to support individual pupils as they work in the classroom, utilising sound recording, images and video.
This half-day course will give delegates time to explore and consider the potential of the tools for particular pupils within their own setting.
