Great teachers, becoming even greater!

Great teachers know a lot about learning and how to make it happen. However, it seems common that the conditions that optimise student learning (a clear curriculum, formative information, feedback, opportunities for practice etc.) are often missing from teacher learning. Teachers deserve better.

Teachers matter more to student achievement than any other aspect of schooling, so the professional development of teachers should be the single biggest priority of every school/college.

The Great Teaching Toolkit aims to help teachers take ownership of their learning, for the benefit of their students.

The answer to the question ‘What can I best focus on to improve?’ is likely to be different for different teachers.

What is the Great Teaching Toolkit?

The Great Teaching Toolkit: Teachers

At the heart of the Toolkit is our Model for Great Teaching – the things teachers know, do and believe that research has shown to make the biggest difference to student learning. It can be thought of as a curriculum for teacher learning.

The Great Teaching Toolkit: Teachers

Aligned to the model are courses focused on improving specific elements of Great Teaching (e.g., creating a supportive environment, structuring, questioning, explaining).

The Great Teaching Toolkit: Teachers

Toolkit instruments provide confidential feedback to you on your teaching practice – what you’re already great at, and what you could focus on to be even greater! These too are related to the dimensions and elements found in the Model for Great Teaching.

A great teacher is one who is willing to do what it takes to be more effective next year than this”

Rob Coe

Your learning, in your hands!

The instruments in the Toolkit take the form of student surveys and video observation tools.

Student surveys give your students a voice in teaching and learning, and gain accessible and actionable feedback about  classroom experiences in relation to the Model for Great Teaching. The feedback they generate can be a powerful tool for your own learning – offering additional insight that helps to personalise your professional development.

The Great Teaching Toolkit: Teachers

Video observation tools help enhance your development journey by enabling you to capture snippets of your practice, reflect, and seek feedback from trusted colleagues to facilitate high-impact conversations around strengths and strategies to try in the classroom.

Great Teaching can be learnt

The Toolkit includes teacher courses which relate directly to dimensions and elements of the Model for Great Teaching. Delivered online, our courses and programmes incorporate opportunities for collaboration with colleagues, as well as activities to plan, implement and evaluate pedagogical approaches in your context.

The foundation

All teachers should complete the Toolkit Foundation course: An evidence-based approach to great teaching. It serves as an orientation to the Toolkit and covers core concepts at the heart of the Model for Great Teaching.

Work on one thing at a time

The following selection of courses connects the most up-to-date research evidence on learning to practical classroom strategies, and then helps you to select and adapt individual teaching approaches to hone and use in your practice.

Each course consists of an eight-week study period, followed by an implementation cycle.

  • Creating a supportive environment
  • Maximising opportunity to learn
  • Embedding
  • Explaining
  • Interacting
  • Questioning
  • Structuring

  • Behaviour and Culture Programme
  • Science of Learning Programme
  • Assessment Lead Programme

The Toolkit is about great teachers, becoming even greater!

You can use it to:

  • Answer the question ‘What can I best focus on to improve that will optimise student learning?’
  • Make evidence-based, personalised decisions about how to use precious time for professional development.
  • Contribute to active and ongoing research.
  • Provide an evidence-based structure for your long-term development.
  • Be the best teacher you can be.

Learning something important and challenging, and seeing progress because of focused and sustained effort, is a great feeling. We hope the Toolkit will ultimately help to enhance your job satisfaction.
