Swindon NQT Programme 2017 – 2018
Providing consistent, high-quality professional development for all new teachers in the early years of their careers should have a positive impact on improving teacher retention over the longer term (A Framework of Core Content for Initial Teacher Training, July 2016). What are the aims of this programme?
The aims of this NQT programme are essentially twofold:
• to create a sustainable network of leadership aware new teachers
• to develop observable leadership thinking skills in relation to key aspects of practice
How will these aims be achieved?
NQTs will have the opportunity to be involved in some interactive work around key areas of practice before observing and then discussing and deconstructing the work of some Good and Outstanding practitioners. When will NQTs be involved in the programme?
There will be five termly meetings, each at a different secondary:
• Leading Learning with Challenge and Engagement – 2nd October 2017
• Leading Learning with Powerful Questions – 21st November 2017
• Leading Learning with Assessment – 10th January 2018
• Leading with Coaching Learning Models – 19th March 2018
• Leading with Innovative Practice – 24th May 2018
Who will be delivering the programme?
Ron Piper, formerly Assistant Principal at The Ridgeway School and now PGCE Course Leader for the Swindon SCITT. Ron holds ICF recognised coaching qualifications and is also an NLP Master Practitioner and Trainer.
Ron Piper, formerly Assistant Principal at The Ridgeway School and now PGCE Course Leader for the Swindon SCITT. Ron holds ICF recognised coaching qualifications and is also an NLP Master Practitioner and Trainer. Ron's current training focuses on exploring the commonalities that exist between outstanding teaching, coaching and self-leadership and considers questions such as Do Outstanding teachers coach rather than teach? What’s similar about coaching and leadership thinking? and What has to happen to create a coaching culture for staff and students? Ron is especially interested in how planning and designing lessons around coaching presuppositions has positive impact on student outcomes. In short, Ron is keen to help teachers to be coaches in their classrooms and help them to understand that Outstanding is a way of thinking rather than doing.
