The student surveys provided me with such a useful insight into my teaching, and one that I had not been able to collect before.

A whole-staff approach to improving teaching and learning

Research shows that there are key things that teachers know and do that make the biggest difference to student outcomes (and you can read more about them in our Great Teaching Toolkit: Evidence Review here).

The GTT is anchored firmly in these 17 Elements of Great Teaching, so by doing anything within the platform, you and your staff can be sure you are taking a best-bet approach to teacher CPD. It is also designed with the evidence on learning, and best-practice approaches to teacher CPD in mind.

It ensures that teachers have autonomy and ownership over their professional learning, and helps to:

  • Develop a common language across teachers, teaching assistants and school leaders.
  • Improve teaching in a sustained, sustainable and evidence-based way.
  • Showcase the quality of teaching and learning across your staff.

What will the GTT enable you to do?

  • Improve your understanding of the underpinning features of Great Teaching, with our suite of practical and classroom-focused Courses, as well as longer Lead Programmes.
  • Give students a trustworthy voice in teaching and learning with reliable and research-backed student feedback tools.
  • Turn these insights into improvement with development cycles: a model for improvement which can be used individually, with a coach or with a group of colleagues.
  • Set your own school-wide development strategies and priorities, for all teachers or for specific groups.
  • Supercharge observation, mentoring and coaching conversations, with our observation rubric and guided video observation tool, powered by our friends at VEO. (No expensive equipment needed!)
  • Access actionable insights around the key support factors in school with the School Environment and Leadership Survey.
  • Keep track of your and your teachers’ CPD with our CPD Passport.
