Description

WHAT IS THE LEAD LEARNER PROGRAMME?

The Lead Learner Programme is a two-year programme for the brightest and best of our teachers working in innovation groups in schools and in partnership with similar groups in partner schools. The purpose of the programme is to bring new and outstanding practices into our schools and to excite their staffrooms about teaching and learning.

WHAT IS THE PROGRAMME’S TRACK RECORD?

The programme has successfully introduced exciting teaching ideas and supported the brightest and best of our teachers for the past nine years in a number of Nottingham schools working in partnership together.

WHAT’S THE RATIONALE?

- The best teaching ideas are out there in our schools and we need to encourage our teachers to find them, be confident enough to try them and adapt them to individual school needs

- The best schools are ones where there is a vibrant learning culture for pupils and staff

- The best schools look outwards for ideas

WHO CAN BE A LEAD LEARNER?

A typical Lead Learner will be a teacher with little or no extra responsibility, who will probably have been teaching for three to six years, and is already an excellent teacher who is passionate about improving their practice and is good at inspiring others.

WHAT WILL THEY DO?

They will commit to a two-year programme involving:

- Being a member of an innovation group in their school

- Carrying out a piece of action research that will benefit Teaching & Learning in their school

- Attending half-termly twilight sessions on Wednesday afternoons with similar groups from partner schools. These sessions will be a mixture of good practice exchanges, presentations by “experts” and report-backs on action research projects. Visits to see and exchange good practice in other schools will also be planned and shared

- Encouraging other staff in their schools to be enthusiastic about outstanding teaching
