Dynamic Sixth Form Teaching (Session 1)
This programme specifically focuses on KS5 teaching with the aim to develop teacher skills and confidence in how to effectively teach subjects at sixth form.
With schools often concentrating on KS4 due to the crucial importance of GCSE grades, teachers can be left to find their own way when teaching A level subjects. These courses often challenge teachers regarding how best to deliver them and are of the upmost importance to the students and their future progression. Now that the recent government changes are embedded, it is the perfect time to explore ways of ensuring your sixth form teaching is dynamic, purposeful and successful.
This programme contains 4 core sessions with focus on the different aspects of sixth form success:
