This is a course for the best teachers in your college to share best practice and to develop a project that will move their teaching area or the whole college on. They will also be expected to go back into their college after the course and lead an inset for the whole teaching staff to improve everyone’s teaching in some way. The course will demand honesty and self-criticism, the setting of personal targets, and commitment not only to delegates' improvement, but to the improvement of other teachers through their inset activity. 

Delegates will undertake a project directly concerned with the improvement of their own teaching.  Each delegate will have a mentor from their own college.  They will also be paired up to work together on each other’s teaching for two peer mentoring days in Spring and Summer terms.

Further information about the programme will be available to download in due course.
