This training is aimed at English subject leaders who are either new to the role or looking to enhance their contribution to improving English across the school.
Throughout the course, delegates will gain an in-depth understanding of the expectations of core subject leadership.
Delegates will develop their capacity to evaluate teaching and learning across a range of evidence to drive improvement throughout the school.
The key elements of English subject leadership will be explored through a spotlight on each of the different aims of the English curriculum: effective spoken language, fluent reading for meaning, writing for a range of purposes and vocabulary development.
This will enable subject leaders to deepen subject-specific knowledge and understanding. Delegates are expected to attend all five sessions of this training.

Delivered by the head of business management services, key leaders within Herts for Learning, and other external agencies, this session will provide updates on school business management-related topics.
The format of the session will be a short presentation on current issues relating to the business aspects of running a school, followed by an in-depth presentation and group discussion on a specific topic.
The session is for colleagues working in areas such as finance, HR, ICT, premises and administration. Welcome beverages are available from 9:00am; please come along and use this time to network, before the briefing starts at 9:15am.
If you are unable to attend the briefing ‘in person’ this time we continue to offer remote access following the a successful trial where colleagues said: ‘The remote access was very simple and easy to use’ ‘I would use the remote access again on an ad-hoc basis as there is real value in attending and networking with SBM colleagues’ . This term we will be offering the remote access via a webinar.
If you would like to take advantage of this service, please register for the briefing in the usual way and the training team will contact you with joining instructions on how to access the webinar a couple days before the briefing. Remote access will be charged at £35.
A bespoke forum for reflection, discussion and sharing of effective practice. Content will be tailored in response to feedback gathered from Early Years leaders and respond to local and national agenda items.
Each seminar will be held in a different school setting within the locality, offering the opportunity to visit other Early Years settings and build on sharing best practice.
The proposed Ofsted framework, launching in September this year, places an emphasis on the 'quality of education' with a focus on the curriculum to raise standards.
This half-day course will enable practitioners to explore the new framework and identify key changes, focusing on the Early Years evaluation schedule.
Delegates will have the opportunity to reflect on their provision and curriculum design and what this looks like in practice.
This course is particularly useful to governors who serve on the Headteacher Performance Panel but is of interest to all governors.
Is reducing the hours spent planning maths appealing? Would clear guidance and resources to plan effective teaching sequences that secure key learning help?
Then this may be the answer: HfL maths team’s suite of resources that: - provide a structured approach that maps effective teaching and learning sequences of the key learning in each year group; - are adaptable to meet the needs of individual classes; - enhance teacher subject knowledge; - unpick and illustrate the concepts that need to be understood in key sequences.
This course has been designed specifically for Year 1 and 2 teachers, to make the most effective use of the ESSENTIAL maths planning resources developed by the HfL maths team. Delegates will walk through the learning sequences and key mathematical concepts in their year group. A full range of resources will be provided and delegates will explore how to adapt them to the needs of their class.
Delegates will enhance their understanding of what the end learning should look like, and connect it to maximise teaching time.
Back by popular demand, our annual, September ‘breakfast briefings’ will provide an opportunity to keep up to date with local and national maths news. Key foci will be:
• GCSE Mathematics examination results, feedback and lessons learned
• A level Mathematics examination results, feedback and lessons learned
• KS2 and implications for KS3
These funded (free to attend) cluster meetings are an excellent way to keep up to date with all the news, issues and developments in English. This term’s focus will support English subject leaders to further enhance the curriculum and secure highly effective teaching and learning across the school. Attendance will ensure delegates are up to date with effective leadership, key messages and the possible actions to undertake.Essential Information
