A Model for Teaching Excellence

  • Ensure teachers have the tools to help every learner achieve at least one year’s progress

  • 1+1 = 3: how MATs and Federations of schools can develop the quality of teachers

  • Design teacher learning to ensure their performance improves year on year

  • Reduce workload, uncertainty and variance of teacher quality

    • Cognitive overload

    • Low relational trust

    • Perception gaps


Crystal-clear clarity

Help leaders and teachers to be clear about:

  • What education is for

  • Your school’s/MAT’s aims and visions

  • The pedagogy that has the most impact on children and young people

  • The difference between deep and moderate subject understanding


The jenga of trust

Build a culture of reflection, evaluation and risk-taking

Develop relational trust and what not to do

Create a high-trust, high-accountability organisation

How to model openness to learning


Did you see the gorilla?

How we delude ourselves that we’re better than we really are

Build systems that enable us to close perception gaps:

  • Baseline diagnostics

  • Rubrics to improve practice

  • Video analysis

  • Stakeholder surveys


Every teacher improves every year

  • Ensure your systems and culture enable teachers to make more impact on learners

  • Improve teachers’ time management

  • Design effective meetings

  • Improve teachers in the workflow – lesson feedback and informal learning

  • Design high-impact CPD that can be delivered in-house
