Jim Heal (English Teacher and Behaviour & Discipline SLE) describing the use of Harkness to develop Independent Learning

Professional Learning

The Wellington College Teaching School Partnership is committed to provide a continuum of Professional Development for staff from our Partner schools with the desired outcome of improving the educational attainment of all students. Through a bespoke Professional Learning programme, we aim to meet the needs of staff within the alliance that connects their school's individual CPD programmes with that of the Teaching School Partnership.

Educational practice is constantly advancing and teachers need to keep pace with developments in the professional landscape which directly affect their daily practice. Professional Learning gives teachers control of their own development, directing it towards their interests and giving structure to their career progression. Our aim as a Teaching School is to develop a suite of courses that embed this philosophy across the Partnership. For us, emphasis is on the word 'learning' and it is our hope that this suite of courses provides a wide range of opportunities for educators from our Partner schools to further develop their Professional Learning.

We are offering a programme of inspiring and relevant courses, forums and networking opportunities, which respond to the needs of all school professionals. Areas of focus will include:

• Subject Specific courses
• Leadership
• Reflective practice & evidence based practice in Schools
• Coaching
• Pastoral leadership
• Pupil Premium
