Continued Professional Development
We are thrilled to share that three members of staff across the Brigantia Learning Trust have received accreditation as Teacher-Coaches, through the National College of Education.
The qualification included a 15-month specialised program of in-depth training on research-based instructional coaching strategies, feedback models, learning theories and communication techniques, with staff embarking on the course to further invest in their professional development, and to provide teachers with personalised support and targeted feedback to enhance their professional growth and help them to implement research-based practices, and innovative approaches in their classrooms.
The Level 4 qualification encourages self-reflection, promotes continuous improvement, and empowers teachers to take ownership of their development, achieved on completion of 400 hours of off-the-job reflections, 15 written assignments, observations of our coaching practice and a professional dialogue with an external assessor.
Instructional coaching is highly regarded, and when embedded in schools, serves as a collaborative and transformative professional development approach which has been shown to enhance teacher mastery, ultimately contributing to the overall quality of education and student success.
Congratulations to Melissa, Bethan and Gaynor!
