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 or college

The answer to the question ‘What can I best focus on to improve?’ is likely to be different for different teachers, and the Great Teaching Toolkit helps you answer this question. It allows you to take ownership of your learning, for the benefit of your students.

How does it work?

Inform truly personalised development priorities

  • Act based on robust feedback with student surveys. Identify what you’re already great at, and what you could focus on to become even greater!
  • Facilitate high-impact conversations by using video observation. Record a snippet of your practice, reflect, seek feedback from trusted colleagues.

Your professional learning, in your hands!

  • Build your knowledge in your chosen improvement area with our suite of courses and leader-level programmes, or access a bank of 500+ tagged resources to dip in and dip out of.
  • Ground your professional learning in evidence. Everything within the GTT is thoroughly evidence-based, and all resources, courses and tools centre around our Model for Great Teaching, a curriculum for teacher learning.

See sustained and sustainable progress

  • Follow our guided model for professional learning, providing a structure for your long-term development. This model can be used either on your own, or with colleagues, and can be tailored to your context.
  • Grow your CPD Passport. Log activities from inside and outside of the GTT, and highlight your CPD journey over time.

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