Teacher Development Programme

This strand – around pedagogy, subject knowledge and professional practice – is being delivered on behalf of the ETF by teams at Derby and Sheffield Hallam universities and Cognition Education.

The element focusing on pedagogy will have two parts.

  1. The first will consist of online modules delivered across interactive digital resources, videos, thinking points and further reading. It is aimed at both new teachers and more experienced practitioners who wish to refresh or update their knowledge.
  2. Further modules will concentrate on recent innovations in pedagogy.

The element focusing on subject knowledge will offer videos to help tutors upskill and refresh their teaching.

The third element – focusing on professional practice – will feature films of professional experts that will provide guidance on making the most of industry placements.

Underpinning this strand is help in developing English, maths and digital skills in different learning environments. Drawing on best practice from other ETF programmes, this activity focuses on the teaching of these core skills which are embedded in each T Level route and pathway.

Delivered on behalf of the ETF by Claire Collins Consultancy and the West Midlands Centre for Excellence in Teacher Training (WMCETT), it includes training events on the principles of embedding, training courses and follow-up interactive webinars focused on each skill area, and courses delivered on the ETF’s Foundation Online Learning site.

Details of these courses are available on the ETF’s booking site via the following links:
