Teachers remain, for all the innovations, the most important resource in a school. Our team consists of experienced educators, but largely we invest in individuals who come from similar backgrounds to our learners and are given an opportunity to enter the teaching profession for the first time.
We invest in developing these teachers to be creative educators, compassionate in their approach to classroom management, and willing to explore and be guided by students.
How do we do this?
One-on-one feedback sessions
Our School Leader conducts weekly observation and feedback sessions with all teaching staff. This personalised process builds the professional development of their specific classroom practice as well as their role as a teacher.
Peer feedback and observation:
Teachers regularly observe each other’s classes, and provide feedback and support based on these observations. Creating a culture of open and collaborative teaching practices ensures that all teachers are learning from each other every day.
PD Seminars and Workshops:
We provide our teaching staff with a series of relevant pedagogical workshops and seminars throughout the year. They receive in-service training on the technical aspects of teaching that are not currently provided for in teacher training courses.
