Outstanding Teacher Programme

The OTP empowers teachers to consistently deliver high quality teaching and learning. Through practical and interactive development sessions, participants will build confidence as they generate ideas and strategies on how to improve their practice.
The course will provide teachers with:

  • The ability to raise levels of engagement and achievement in learning.
  • Develop a common language to discuss teaching and learning.
  • The ability to coach colleagues and pupils in their own school and in other schools to raise    performance levels.
  • Raise performance in the classroom by encouraging creativity and developing more innovative practice.
  • Demonstrate a higher level of understanding of teaching.

They are linked practical tasks back in participants' own schools including applying what has been learned through observation.
