Overview

Starting in Autumn term 2020, augmenting our full CPD suite, the Learning Partnership has commissioned expert tutors to lead professional learning communities (PLC) for staff in schools.

Our PLC tutors will work with and support teachers, meet regularly, share expertise and work collaboratively to improve teaching skills and the academic performance of students

Comprising two sessions (each between 45 and 60 minutes) per term focusing on a specific area. .

Session 1: engage colleagues in a lecture style webinar exploring a key issue, area, piece of knowledge, resource or strategy.

Inter-session activity

Session 2: discourse session, exploring the activity and further thinking. The session will also allow for sharing practice.

Session 1: Key input: Emotional Development and its links with behaviour and wellbeing. Links with potential impact of trauma, including Covid 19

Too often our attention gets drawn to the behaviour that is causing concern and, even though we might have a sense there are underlying needs driving it, we perhaps don’t have the knowledge and/or time to properly identify these. The Behaviour Wall is a resource which enables staff to do just this. This session will acquaint you with the resource and theory behind it – and enable you to go away and create an individual support plan that hones in on specific developmental needs.

Intersessional Activity: Using the Behaviour Wall to profile a pupil’s strengths and possible areas for support Optional further reading provided by Steve Include solution focused thinking to help clarify concerns and consider progress measures

Session 2: Feedback from intersessional: what insights have participants gained into the pupil? What strategies have been used – and indicators of progress.

Session 3: Key input: Self-esteem: Low self-esteem is often, and rightly, cited as an underlying factor in explaining challenges a pupil experiences and perhaps presents with.

Solution focused thinking is one of the most powerful approaches currently being used to build pupils’ sense of value, competence and control. This input will be supplemented with an understanding of stroke theory which shines an illuminating light on why, for example, some pupils struggle to accept positive feedback.

Intersessional activity: Creating a stroke map for a pupil/class; developing scaling to focus attention on specific areas of concern.

Session 4: Feedback from intersessional: What insights have participants gained into the pupil? What strategies have been used – and indicators of progress.


Summer:

6/5/21 : 4-4.45

24/6/21 : 4-4.45

Session 5: Key input: Creating effective partnerships: How often do problems arise when working with others because of a confusion over expectations?

The pupil hopes that you’re going to magic their problems away, perhaps a classteacher is hoping you have a magic wand to transform a pupil’s behaviour (and ditto a parent re their own child.)

Even with the best of intentions, problems can and do arise when working with others, whether this is pupils/students, other school colleagues, parents and others. Insights from the contracting model can help enhance these working relationships and minimise the likelihood of problems arising.

Session 6: Feedback from intersessional: Reflections on a key partnership participants have been engaged in and how material from Session 5 has helped enhance it.

Plus: Next steps: A review of the programme over the 3 terms.
