Good to Outstanding Programme

Course Length:
September 2016
to July 2017

The aspiration to develop the quality of teaching and learning underpins all that Opossum offers. It is our aim to ensure that all pupils receive teaching, which is ‘Good’ or better, by developing Quality First Teaching.

This programme is designed to raise the standard of teaching to ‘Outstanding’, developing both teachers and their learners along the journey.

This is a one year bespoke programme, tailored to the individual needs of participants.

All participants are required to undertake a research project around an area of need or interest for the participant’s school.

Schools may then use the findings from the projects as part of their development planning, if desired.
