Leicestershire Secondary SCITT Alumni and Partners, this is for you…

Teach Smarter, Not Harder…

This conference is designed specifically to build on the great work being done in classrooms up and down Leicester and Leicestershire. We want our teachers to be empowered to do more of what is working and has an impact on students and the confidence to move away from practices that simply are not effective.

We have invited Tom Sherrington, author of ‘The Learning Rainforest’ to deliver a day of professional development based around best practice, what research shows works and how to implement this in your classrooms.

9am –  9:30        Meet and greet, with Teas and Coffees

9:30 – 10:30      Contemporary Ideas from Research

10:30 – 11:00    BREAK

11:00 – 13:00    10 Teaching Techniques to Practice Deliberately

13:00 – 14:00     LUNCH

14:00 – 15:30    Facilitated Session in subject groups – Theory into practice

We want all Leicestershire Secondary SCITT Alumni and Partners to leave with strong ideas about what is effective teaching and actual practical strategies that they can go and implement on the following Monday. Teaching at its best, that reduces workload and increases impact.

This conference will be open to Leicestershire Secondary SCITT Trainees and Alumni until December 17th. After this time it will be open to all Leicestershire Secondary SCITT Partners.
